In addition, Wells Fargo will have a private area and be on hand to discuss their Foreclosure Prevention Program. They will assist current home owners who already have a mortgage with them, who live in zip codes: 30310, 30311, 30312, 30313, 30314 and 30315 and who have already made an appointment .

“Not only do we want to put people into homes but keep people in their homes,” said City Councilmember Cleta Winslow. “That's why Wachovia and Wells Fargo are participating.”

“The foreclosure intervention comes at time when we are seeing a spike in foreclosure notices in many communities and it’s impacting all neighborhoods regardless of income level,” Winslow said. “We welcome the assistance and advice counselors Wells Fargo/ Wachovia will provide our attendees. When we prevent a foreclosure, we are not only helping that family remain in their home, but we are also helping to stabilize an entire neighborhood.”
