Prince George’s County, right outside of Washington D.C., has the highest foreclosure rate in the metropolitan area and one of the highest foreclosure rates in the country. The Take Back Your Home Coalition reaches out to homeowners facing possible foreclosure in Prince George’s County every other weekend to educate homeowners about their rights and to encourage homeowners to attend bi-weekly community meetings. At the community meetings, homeowners can access free housing counseling and legal advice.

Project: Participate in a Take Back Your Home Outreach event. Each outreach event lasts around 4-5 hours, and TBYH will provide training and materials.

Where & When: The next canvassing dates are scheduled for Saturday, March 29th and Saturday, April 12th. Participants meet at 10am at American University (WCL International Lounge, 4801 Massachusetts Ave NW, 20016), and will head out after a brief training. Interested volunteers should sign up here.
