The upcoming workshop is for Wells Fargo Home Mortgage, Wells Fargo Financial and Wells Fargo Home Equity customers who are facing financial hardships. We recognize that some of our customers are struggling to pay their bills because they had unexpected medical bills, went through a divorce or experienced a job loss, for example. This workshop offers our customers the opportunity to work face-to-face with a home preservation specialist to determine the best next steps for them.
How many homeowners has Wells Fargo helped since launching this program?
Wells Fargo has participated in more than 700 workshops focused on working face-to-face with customers seeking to avoid foreclosure. Since September 2009, Wells Fargo has hosted 60 of its own “Home Preservation Workshops,” which have been attended by 34,500 customers. Wells Fargo hosted its first Home Preservation Workshop in Houston in November 2010.
