East Atlanta Patch in Georgia says Resources for Residents and Communities (RRC) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that offers free workshops on everything necessary to know about buying and maintaining a home, including foreclosure. There is a nominal $30 charge for the one-day event, but that includes individual counseling if necessary. Tia McCoy, RRC Home Ownership Manager, said, “Of the families we see, 95 percent are new homebuyers. We want to make sure they’re not victims of predatory lending and give them the tools and education they need to make the right decisions. It doesn’t matter what their income or price range is.” The program is funded in part by grants from banks and civic organizations.
