The Homeowner Help Desk, which launched in East New York in 2018, provides assistance to homeowners in financial distress in their communities through a series of “pop-up” events at libraries, senior centers, transit stations, or faith-based institutions.
Help Desks are staffed by housing counselors, financial counselors, attorneys and/or paralegals from our network of community-based partners. Our partners are well qualified; housing counseling agencies are all approved by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
