The Alliance for Stabilizing Our Communities and the Dalton-Whitfield Community Development Corporation are hosting a Home Rescue Fair to help families facing foreclosure. The event is being held at the North West Georgia Trade and Convention Center in Dalton Georgia on Saturday, July 17th. The Alliance hopes to provide home owners with the information and resources they need to avoid foreclosure and keep their homes. Representatives from Bank of America, Chase, Wachovia/Wells Fargo and Suntrust will be on site to work directly with homeowners to address their mortgage issues. If your mortgage lender is not represented, the Dalton-Whitfield Community Development Corporation will provide counseling to assist you with the next step in avoiding foreclosure. There will also be housing counselors, attorneys, foreclosure prevention workshops and tips on tax incentives for home owners.

- Current pay stubs
- 2008 and 2009 income tax returns
- Three months of bank statements
