Help for Bronx Homeowners this Thursday

Bronx Homeowners struggling to stay in their homes or just fighting to keep the costs of ownership down will find some much needed help this Thursday at the Northwest Bronx Homeowner Resource Fair.

With foreclosures at an all time high, property values dropping, unemployment in the double digits, and another double-digit water rate increase on its way, the resource fair will focus on lowering ownership costs through weatherization and energy-efficiency programs, in addition to foreclosure prevention counseling and legal services.

Registration and free dinner begin at 6:00 PM this Thursday at the Our Lady of Refuge Parish Center, 290 East 196th Street between Bainbridge and Briggs Avenues. All homeowners in attendance will will benefit from energy savings tips, a free weatherization kit, and a free rat-proof garbage can.

Homeowners facing financial hardship can learn about foreclosure prevention options, get help modifying their mortgage and receive free legal assistance. Representatives will be on hand from local organizations to explain services offered year-round.

This Homeowner Resource Fair is sponsored by University Neighborhood Housing Program, the Northwest Bronx Community and Clergy Coalition, the West Bronx Housing and Neighborhood Resource Center and Fordham Bedford Housing Corporation. Other participating groups include the Association for Energy Affordability (providing the garbage cans), New York Legal Assistance Group, the Parodneck Foundation, and NYSERDA’s Energy $mart Communities program.

For more information or to RSVP, contact UNHP at 718-933-2539.
