ROC The Day on December 8th!

The Housing Council in Rochester, NY is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation, and one of New York State’s most active HUD-approved housing counseling agencies.

We provide free and low-cost services along the entire continuum of housing and homeownership, whether you are a prospective homebuyer, current homeowner, tenant or landlord. We work hard to assist low and moderate-income households access the housing opportunities that they deserve, and that will provide critical stability in their lives.

On Thursday December 8th, the United Way is giving non-profits like the Housing Council a chance to reach out to individual donors and ask for financial support during “ROC the Day,” a one-day only, online giving event.

On December 8th, I’m asking you to support the Housing Council with a donation for as much or as little as you’re able to give so that we may continue to build on the strong programs that have helped our clients lead healthy, stable, and sustainable lives. The Housing Council maintains a 7% administrative costs rate, meaning that 93 cents of every dollar spent at the Housing Council is dedicated to direct services.

The Housing Council provides:

– Rental assistance to households experiencing financial emergencies
– Training, support and information to landlords and property managers
– Housing counseling to homeowners in danger of foreclosure
– First-time homebuyer training and education
– Fair housing information to tenants, homeowners and landlords

We wouldn’t be here without our clients who we are proud to serve, and I’m asking for your help so that we can continue to offer high quality, free service to our clients well into the future.

Thank you for any amount of support you’re able to give!
