RICHMOND, VA (WWBT)- It can be traumatic when you're close to foreclosure and see no help in sight, but a popular program returns Saturday, empowering people to fight default.
It's an all-day event, where you can sit down and have an expert help you.
Robert Hawkes was about to lose the most valuable thing he owns: the home he built for his Powhatan family 20 years ago.
"We've raised our daughter there, we've raised horses there," said Hawkes.
Hawkes sat down with us, and told us he was laid off from a job. His income dropped dramatically, and he couldn't keep up with his mortgage payments. Working with his lender over the phone went nowhere.
"Nobody there. They say they want to help you, but nobody there really wants to do anything," said Hawkes.
