Short Description: 

Assisting Older Homeowners After a Natural Disaster

Full Description: 

Older adults face unique challenges and exhibit different vulnerabilities during and after a natural disaster. Older homeowners, for example, may need additional assistance securing their homes and moving out of a storm's path. Recovering from the disaster may also be a challenge for older adults on fixed or limited income.

This free webcast will address both the practical challenges and resources available to aid older homeowners after a disaster. The discussion will highlight the loss mitigation and other options available to prevent mortgage foreclosure, and housing and other related assistance from FEMA.   

Closed captioning will be available on this webcast. A link with access to the captions will be shared through GoToWebinar’s chat box shortly before the webcast start time.

Presenters:

  • Odette Williamson, Staff Attorney, National Consumer Law Center
  • Sapna Aiyer, Managing Attorney, Housing & Consumer Unit, Lone Star Legal Aid
