Providing Foreclosure Prevention Services to LGBTQ+ Homeowners

Michelle Michelle February 10, 2022

Empire Justice Center is excited to announce our Building Equity Initiative, a new component of our Homeowner Protection Program (HOPP).  Advocates will learn to recognize barriers that have historically prevented New Yorkers from many communities and with specific identities and intersectionalities from attaining and maintaining homeownership and provide tools to ensure foreclosure prevention services are inclusive and equitable.

Join Empire Justice Center, The Center for LGBTQ Economic Advancement & Research and The National Center for Lesbian Rights for a virtual webinar on how to effectively serve and advocate for LGBTQ+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Questioning) clients. Presenters will share information about historical and current obstacles to equitable housing for LGBTQ+ people, and some tools for advocates to provide welcoming, culturally competent services for LGBTQ+ clients.

Materials:  PowerPoint
