Foreclosure Rescue Fair: A Volunteer Event With WEFA

Date: 4/23/2011
Time: 8:00am - 4:00pm
Location: York College: 160-02 Liberty Avenue Jamaica, NY 11451 (Take E, J, & Z trains to the end of the line at Parsons-Archer/Jamaica Center.)

WEFA (Wagner Economic and Finance Association) invites you to join us for a day of volunteering to help avert and prevent Foreclosure!

The purpose of the Rescue Fair, hosted by the Center for New York City Neighborhoods, Inc, is to provide access to information and resources for families who are concerned about becoming delinquent on their mortgage obligations or who are currently delinquent and possibly facing foreclosure. Some of the partners and lenders in the fair include the Alliance for Stabilizing Our Communities, NYC Council Member Leroy Comrie, Bank of America, and Wells Fargo/Wachovia.

The overall strategy of the fair is to support community-based efforts to provide home retention services to low and moderate income and multicultural families at risk of foreclosure.

Volunteer activities might include greeting, running registration/check-in, and overall monitoring of workshops.

Breakfast and lunch are to be provided.

PLEASE BE ON TIME AT 8:00 am. Be sure to check-in with Adam Drucker, VP of Events for WEFA
