New Jersey homeowners who are having difficulty making mortgage payments because of job loss, reduced income, or other reasons will have the opportunity to get some help next week as United Way of Burlington County partners with Clarifi, a non-profit credit counseling organization.
The two groups will be hosting a free event on Thursday, April 12th, from 6pm – 8pm at the United Way location in Rancocas, NJ to provide critical information that could help New Jersey residents save their homes.
Among the topics to be tackled at the session:
An overview of NJ housing programs, eligibility and requirements
Tips and advice to help address your housing issues
Action steps you can take on your own
The opportunity to meet privately with a housing counselor
“We want homeowners to know that there are options available and legitimate organizations that will help them,” says Stephanie Bittner, Community Outreach and Education Manager for Clarifi. “You don’t have to lose your home.”
One such option is New Jersey’s HomeKeeper program. The program offers qualified New Jersey homeowners up to $48,000, so they can continue to pay their mortgage or make back payments. HomeKeeper must be applied for through a certified housing counseling agency, like Clarifi.
Space is limited, so individuals are asked to register in advance. You can do so by calling Clarifi at 800-989-2227, United Way at 609-267-4500 or visiting clarifi.org. Refreshments will be provided.
