Submitted by ub on Thu, 06/09/2011 - 20:43

The Bronx Foreclosure Center is located at Bronx Civil Court. The Center will be staffed by counselors who will give free legal and housing advice to those in danger of losing their homes.

All to often homeowners at risk of foreclosure don’t know their rights, or the help that is available to them. By having a Foreclosure Center in the Bronx Court House, homeowners at risk of losing the American Dream will be able to seek assistance faster and find ways to keep both their homes and their financial security.

Senator Klein spent two years working on this critically important project with $175,000 in funding. Bronx Administrative Judge Douglas McKeon, Legal Services NYC-Bronx, The Legal Aid Society, the New York Legal Assistance Group, and Brooklyn Housing and Family Services have assisted with funding, and staff that they provided to this project.

The center is open from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m., Monday through Friday.

The Bronx Civil Court House is located at 851 Grand Concourse, Bronx.
