Counselors will be present to answer questions about:

  • Predatory Lending;

  • Renter/Landlord Rights and Responsibilities; and
  • Taxes and Insurance.
They will also give tips about being a first time homebuyer. Homes available for purchase in the city of Detroit will also be featured during these workshops. Each workshop is free and open to any resident interested in becoming more financially savvy.

Refreshments will be served. There is no charge for parking and there will be prize drawings.
