The “3rd Annual D.C. Housing Expo and Foreclosure Clinic” returns for the third year on June 4. The event, which is open to all homeowners who may be at risk of foreclosure, allows city residents to meet face-to-face with their mortgage company and a HUD-approved counseling agency to avoid losing their homes.

Leading financial strategist and author Michelle Singletary provides the keynote address.
The Help for Homeowners Foreclosure Prevention Event takes place at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, 801 Mount Vernon Place, N.W., 10 a.m.-5 p.m. The expo takes place 10 a.m.-3 p.m.
