Homeowners who are still trying to make ends meet after Hurricane Sandy destroyed their properties now have a place to turn for financial help. The Neighborhood Housing Services (NHS) celebrated their “grand opening” at the Brooklyn Real Properties offices at East 92nd Street and Flatlands Avenue last Friday, welcoming residents who need help keeping their home while making critical repairs.

With many services, including foreclosure prevention and mortgage counseling, NHS representatives will do their best to help homeowners manage with their mortgage payments. Brooklyn Real Properties’ president Jean Paul Ho is proud that his office is the headquarters for NHS agents to conduct their business and hopes struggling homeowners will take advantage of the services and not let the October 2012 tragedy push them out of their homes.
