Westbury hosts event to help homeowners

December 12, 2012 by  

Over a month after Superstorm Sandy hit land, homeowners across Long Island are still feeling the effects.

Hope NOW Alliance, NY State Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman, CDC Long Island, and a number of other partners are sponsoring an event in Westbury to provide homeowners with assistance in dealing with the impact of the disaster on their homes.

The event will be free and open to the public. Homeowners are encouraged to arrive early, since people will be seen on a first come, first served basis. During the event, titled ‘Hope for Long Island’, people will be able to meet with their mortgage providers to discuss insurance and their mortgages in the aftermath of the storm. They will also have the chance to meet with insurance companies to learn more about the process of filing a claim for damages that resulted due to the storm.

Housing counselors approved by the Department of Housing and Urban Development will also be on hand during the event to talk to homeowners about disaster relief and housing assistance. Companies who will be in attendance include Long Island Housing Services, New York Property Insurance Underwriting Association, Allstate, and GMAC Mortgage.

Hope NOW Alliance made use of Westbury flyer printing services to promote the event. The flyers contain all the information a person would want to know about it. Hope for Long Island will take place on Saturday, December 15, from 10:00 am to 7:00 pm at the Joseph M. Barry Career and Technical Education Center in Westbury.
