In the event the minimum attendance limit is not met for a particular session, it will be canceled unless the local homefinder requests otherwise. If a training session is canceled, registered participants will be notified by phone or e-mail and this website will be updated under the Latest News heading in the upper right corner of the home page. It is our hope that no sessions will be canceled; therefore, it is extremely important to pre-register 48 hours in advance.
