Many families in Illinois and Chicago are still underwater with their mortgage and are in need of help. For this reason Governor Quinn created Illinois Foreclosure Prevention Network in February, 2012; today they have formed a partnership with 68 counseling agencies working out of nearly 100 office locations across the state.
In an effort to reach more residents in trouble, this weekend the following events will be presented:
