NeighborWorks America has announced a series of consumer outreach efforts to support affordable, sustainable and healthy homes and communities during the 2010 National Homeownership Month. “For more than 30 years, NeighborWorks America and its network of affiliates around the country have supported and encouraged affordable and long-term homeownership,” said Ken Wade, chief executive officer of NeighborWorks America. “From providing daily homeownership tips to urging homeowners facing foreclosure to talk to the right people, throughout National Homeownership Month we are working to get good information in the hands of potential homebuyers and current homeowners so they can achieve and sustain the American Dream of homeownership.”
NeighborWorks America and its network have planned a series of activities in June, including:
►Featuring a “homeownership tip of the day” on NeighborWorks America’s National Homeownership Month Web page, the NeighborWorks News Blog, NeighborWorks America’s Facebook page, and via Twitter.
►Broadcasting videos that feature homeowners and nonprofits who discuss what homeownership means to them. To see current examples, visit the NeighborWorks America YouTube channel.
►Urging homeowners who face foreclosure to contact the right people through a new public service announcement campaign designed to educate homeowners about where they can turn for help if they are at risk of foreclosure. The campaign urges homeowners to call the Hope Hotline at (888) 995-HOPE (4673) where they can speak to non-profit U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD)-approved housing counselors in English, Spanish or more than 20 additional languages.
