With Stockton still the foreclosure capital of the United States, Rep. Jerry McNerney, D-Pleasanton, and Rep. Dennis Cardoza, D-Atwater, today announced they’ll hold a workshop to offer free, confidential advice to families facing foreclosure or worried about making their mortgage payments.

Counselors will be available from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the California Housing Finance Agency, and the Stockton Housing Department as well as from nonprofits such as NeighborWorks and Consumer Credit Counseling. To make the most of the time with counselors, participants are asked to bring all relevant mortgage and financial paperwork.

Assemblymembers Greg Aghazarian, R-Stockton, and Cathleen Galgiani, D-Stockton, will attend too, as will Stockton Mayor Ed Chavez. This’ll be from 10 to noon Saturday, Dec. 1 — that’s two weeks from tomorrow — in the Stockton Arena Conference Room, 248 West Fremont St.

Experts estimate that in Stockton, there is one foreclosure for every 31 homes.
