Jobs With Tyler Perry Studios!
Well now I ran across this by happenstance! One of my wonderful Black Enterprise editors asked me to cover a Tyler Perry event called The Entrepreneurial Mind at the Fox a few weeks ago. He met with about 150 business owners a few hours prior to his play. It’s true what they say about t.v. adding several pounds. He actually has a slender build and is such a NICE person! But I digress… I went on his website to find a little background info on he and his company. I ran across this link and I had to share it with you! If you would like to work with Tyler Perry Studios, please click on this link: http://www.tylerperry.com/work-with-us/. You can fill out a little info and copy and paste your resume into the email. It’s as easy as that! Best of luck to you! That would be so cool! I’ve completed my article, please look for it in the July issue of Black Enterprise.

FREE Jazz Concert in Lithonia, Georgia on Saturday, April 28
DAROLD HONORE BETTER HOMES AND GARDENS
More than a year ago, Georgia received $340 million from President Obama’s “Hardest Hit Fund” — known as HomeSafe in Georgia — to help unemployed homeowners avoid foreclosures. But not enough is being done to get the word out and to get the funds where they are needed most.
That’s why on Saturday, April 28 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Salem Bible Church, I’m co-hosting a community event to help struggling homeowners learn more about HomeSafe. I’m holding the event with HUD-approved counseling agency D&E and the Georgia Department of Community Affairs.
To pre-qualify and to register, visit D&E’s Web site at depower.org or homeowners can call them at 770-961-6900 or toll-free at 1-877-790-1831.
HomeSafe provides up to an 18-month mortgage-payment bridge to Georgia homeowners who have suffered a substantial income loss due to involuntary unemployment or underemployment and who are able and willing to work.
The event will also provide opportunities for homeowners who do not qualify for HomeSafe to meet with counselors who can check on their eligibility for a loan modification through their lender.
For more information, go to D&E HERE.
The event is free and open to the public. If you’ve lost your job or you’re underemployed and you’re having trouble making your mortgage payments, please stop by Salem Bible Church on Saturday, April 28 between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. to see if HomeSafe can help you.
WHO: Congressman Hank Johnson (GA-04), DeKalb County, Department of Community Affairs, D&E.
WHAT: HomeSafe Georgia Foreclosure Prevention Event
WHEN: Saturday, April 28 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

RETIRED AMERICANS: I want to thank the Alliance of Retired Americans for honoring me with a “pro-retiree” and “lifetime” perfect score of 100/100. For more, click HERE.
HELPING STUDENTS: House Democrats announced April 24 that we will introduce legislation to keep college students’ loan rates from doubling on July 1st. The “Stop the Student Loan Interest Rate Hike Act of 2012” keeps interest rates on need-based student loans at 3.4 percent next year for the more than 7 million borrowers. This will save the average borrower $1,000 in loan repayment costs. For more, click HERE.
As always, I appreciate your time and feedback. Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to represent you in Congress.
