The West Virginia attorney general's office will launch a program this month to help residents who are feeling the financial burden of home ownership.

The first of four workshops is scheduled April 10 at the Putnam County Courthouse in Winfield. The sessions are called "Project: Save our Homes."
Attorney General Darrell McGraw said the workshops will offer one-on-one assistance to homeowners seeking relief under a landmark mortgage foreclosure settlement with five national banks. Representatives will also help homeowners navigate loan modification applications, refinancing for so-called underwater loans and how to delay the foreclosure process.
Other workshops are planned April 12 in Montgomery, April 17 in Charleston and April 19 in St. Albans.
The workshops will continue in May and June in Huntington, Wheeling, Martinsburg, Morgantown and elsewhere.
