Commissioner Jean Monestime announces help for homeowners

Homeownership Community Event to take place Saturday, June 16

Miami-Dade County Commissioner Jean Monestime, District 2, has partnered with New Birth Baptist Church’s Vision to Victory Human Services Corporation to bring help to struggling homeowners.

A special Homeownership Community Event will be held on Saturday, June 16, 2012, at Vision to Victory Human Services Corporation, 13230 NW 7th Avenue in Miami.  At the event, homeowners will be able to meet one-on-one with their mortgage company and a HUD-certified housing counselor to find options that meet their housing needs. 

Homeowners will also be able to meet with representatives from the Florida Hardest Hit program.

Options for homeowners may include home loan modification or other loan assistance options.  Specialists will be available to review individual homeowner eligibility for specific programs.

Other resources will be available for residents such as employment services, health services, and fair housing education.

“It is really important to spread the word that help is available for struggling homeowners,” said Commissioner Monestime. “I encourage everyone to come out and take advantage of these valuable services.”

Homeowners should contact Vision to Victory Human Services Corporation at 305-691-3464 before June 16, to obtain a list of the documents that are required to determine eligibility for loan assistance, and for help in compiling the needed documents.
