Take Root South Florida Initiative Addresses Foreclosure Prevention And Homeownership In Florida

"We have a great majority of people who have been unemployed or underemployed and that has had a terrific impact on the way they've been able to manage their finances," she said.   Help is out there. But it's often hard to find. 

That's where  Take Root South Florida  comes in. It is a campaign lead by HLC that has set out to help families and stabilize neighborhoods.  "This really is the 911 for the housing crisis. This is the call you make to get help," said Suzanne Cabrera President and CEO of the Housing Leadership Council.  It works with a simple premise. 

"For one thing, we're giving reliable information and really taking the confusion out of the programs that are out there. It's one call. It's one source to get all the help you need to save your home," Cabrera said.  It's that easy.  A single phone call to ' 211' that puts tens of thousands of families in touch with the help they need." 

According to Lanthier, "There are reputable places they can go. There are free services for most families."  Lanthier has seen the struggles. "It's really going to help a lot of people who have been misinformed. Help that can turn things around."

The first event will be held on Thursday, January 17, 2013 at 8:30 a.m. at CNC hosted by our co-sponsors at the United Way of Miami 3250 SW 3rd Ave, Miami, FL. 33129. The second event will be held on Friday, January 18 th at 8:30am at The Urban League of Broward County 560 Northwest 27th Avenue Fort Lauderdale, FL 33311. Guests include but not limited to: media, press, local government, nonprofit housing counselors, local business community, realtors, lenders and other housing stakeholders. Part of CNC's goal and the Urban League of Broward County is reducing the number of residents facing foreclosure by partnering with lending institutions to offer loan modifications/refinancing and other strategies to keep them in their homes.  Their objective also entails promoting financial literacy in our community by conducting workshops to inform and educate our residents and also to empower residents who need one-on-one counseling to address their credit issues. 

There will be a multi-media campaign launch to help further educate our communities beginning February 2013 by Carnegie Communications, Ft. Lauderdale Fl. 33309 .A division of the Carnegie Group.   http://www.thecarnegiegroup.com/
