WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Soon, area homeowners will have another person on their side, fighting to keep their homes from going into foreclosure.
North Carolina has experienced a tremendous increase in foreclosures, which often leaves homeowners feeling helpless.
Now, free help is on the way for those in financial need.
December 10, the State Foreclosure Prevention Project will be training Wilmington attorneys on foreclosure counseling and loan re-negotiation.
Lawyers say they're looking forward to being able to better advise the community.
"It's important for me to try to help and take care of my local citizens. I mean, we're all part of the same community and you know a few hours of my time spent to try to help someone you know pro bono, I think is well worth it," said real estate attorney, Robert Williams, Jr.
