Those in danger of having their homes foreclosed upon met with their lenders including Bank of America, Citibank, GMAC, J.P. Morgan Chase, Homeward Residential, and Wells Fargo.

Jacqui Pina of the New Bedford branch of Neighborhood Housing Services tells WBSM News there’s solace even for those who aren’t able to find a way out.

The Foreclosure Prevention Workshop was sponsored by the Massachusetts Office of Consumer Affairs and Business Regulation.
