Real Estate Counseling: Solid Ground looking for great volunteers

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development cut Solid Ground's contract $16,000 from last year for housing counseling and King County is expected to make more cuts to the agencies due to their $90 million deficit crisis. The article was posted on the Seattle Times website October 10, 2008. If you've got experience in lending or real estate and would like to volunteer, e-mail Dziak at housingcounseling@solid-ground.org. Hours can be flexible or regular. Solid Ground is at 1501 N. 45th St. in Wallingford, about a mile west of I-5.

Solid Ground gets lots of calls from lenders and real-estate agents who offer to volunteer at the agency, but the agency's contract with HUD prohibits using active lenders and agents -- conflict of interest -- so the agency is looking for other options to be able to help clients in need. "
