VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) –Valdosta city leaders say everyone should have a right to decent, safe, and affordable housing.

The city is hosting an event Saturday hopes to reach people with housing needs.

Twenty-two agencies will be at Mathis City Auditorium to talk about housing options, including rental and ownership information.

People will learn about topics ranging from down payment assistance to fair housing and lending rights.

"There are a lot of people going through homeownership difficulties," said City of Valdosta Neighborhood Development Coordinator Sabrina Riley-Randolph. "There are foreclosures on the rise so we're trying to provide everyone in the area with an option to come to the city and find in one particular place all the information they need."

The summit is Saturday at Mathis City Auditorium on Ashley Street from 10 to 4.
