Upcoming Volunteer Opportunity with I Care Atlanta

Saturday, August 19th

11:00 AM – 12:30 PM (or longer depending on turnout)

Volunteers needed to provide one on one counseling.

The I Care Atlanta, Inc. Event is just around the corner!  We are bringing back (by popular demand) HOME BUYING 101 and we need volunteers to sign up to discuss budgeting and getting ready to purchase a home as well as volunteers to meet with individuals for one on one counseling AFTER the presentations.

The Home Buying 101 is a unique workshop where:

  1. FPA members open the floor by discussing budgeting and things to think about before making the decision to purchase a home.
  2. A mortgage lender then discusses the varying programs available as well as goes into detail about the mortgage approval process.
  3. A home inspector discusses the importance of this step and what a home inspector looks for.
  4. And lastly a realtor from the community wraps it up with the whole process summarized.



WHEN: Saturday, August 19th; Presentation/Workshop on Home Buying 101 followed by Q&A begins at 10:00 AM, One-on-One Counseling commences at 11:00 AM.
