A free workshop is being held Saturday in the District to assist homeowners who are in default on their mortgage or facing foreclosure.

The workshop provides a forum for at risk homeowners in the D.C. metro area to meet with their mortgage company and a HUD approved counseling agency.

The goal is to work out a solution to keep homeowners in their homes. The event is part of the Obama Administration’s "Making Home Affordable Program."

Phyllis Caldwell is Chief of the Homeownership Preservation Office at the Treasury Department.

"In the Washington metropolitan area we currently have over 28-thousand homeowners that are in the program, yet we are continuing to try to reach out because we know there are many struggling homeowners," she says.

Those attending the workshop will also be able to meet with Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton.

The event takes place Saturday from 9 am to 3 pm at the Washington Marriott Wardman Park hotel.
