Wells Fargo will hold a workshop for distressed homeowners on Tuesday and Wednesday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum, 1255 Hempstead Tpke. in Uniondale.

Wells Fargo representatives will be available to confidentially discuss homeowners’ questions and concerns about their mortgages. Homeowners can also find out whether they’re eligible for a loan modification under the federal Home Affordable Modification Program, and learn about options that might help avoid foreclosure.

Wells Fargo has notified 40,000 of its Long Island-area customers about the event, and more than 100 mortgage specialists will be available, according to the lender.

Parking will be free. Walk-ins are welcome but registration is recommended. For more information or to register, call 800-405-8067 or visit Wells Fargo’s website.

Wells Fargo will also hold a workshop on July 31 and Aug. 1 at the New York Marriott at the Brooklyn Bridge, 333 Adams St. in Brooklyn.
