Washington, DC — Tomorrow, in honor of Older Americans month, the National Community Reinvestment Coalition (NCRC) will hold a senior services fair in Washington, DC. At this event, NCRC will provide information to older Americans about loan modifications, changes to modification programs, housing scams and fraud specifically targeting seniors. Attendees will also be provided with a benefits checkup.
“We need to ensure that older Americans are well informed about both the resources that are available to them and the scams that are out there,” said NCRC President and CEO John Taylor. “NCRC is dedicated to empowering older Americans and making sure they have the tools they need.”
NCRC is partnering with local and national groups for the event. Groups in attendance will include AARP, the National Council on Aging (NCOA), the Women’s Institute for a Secure Retirement (WISER), and the Grey Panthers.
The event will take place at the Shiloh Baptist Church at 1500 Ninth Street Northwest, Washington, DC on Friday, May 18th from 9:00am to 1:00pm. This event is open to press. For more information please contact Jesse Van Tol at 202-464-2709 or Eric Hersey at 202-524-4880.
