Sandy Housing Resource Workshop Friday in Cape May Court House
Cape May Countyans struggling through post-Superstorm housing difficulties can find access to support programs on November 18 in Cape May Court House.
The New Jersey Department of Community Affairs (DCA)'s free Housing Resource Fair is open to Sandy survivors from any of the nine affected counties. It takes place between 11 AM and 2 PM at Atlantic Cape Community College, 341 Court House-South Dennis Road.
Among the agencies, companies and support groups scheduled to attend are Catholic Charities, Community Health Law Project, Consumer Credit & Budget Counseling, Disabled American Veterans, Family Promise of Cape May County, Puerto Rican Action Committee of Southern New Jersey, Robins' Nest, and South Jersey Legal Services.
Housing counselors, landlords and developers will be on site for one-on-one discussions. Agents from affordable housing tracts, support organizations, non-profits, and local and state government will also attend, said DCA Commissioner Charles A. Richman.
"The Housing Resource Fair is a great opportunity for people affected by Superstorm Sandy to learn about housing-related programs that can be of help to them," Richman said. "We encourage residents to stop by with their questions and concerns so that we can direct them to available assistance."
