Legal Aid hosts community meeting for Washington Towne Homes residents

Non-profit will provide advice and answer questions for those facing relocation

Community Legal Aid is hosting a community meeting for residents affected by the Washington Towne Homes closure. The non-profit law firm specializes in housing and foreclosure law, among other legal areas, and will be sending its local housing team to the event.

“Our biggest concern is for those residents who may not have anywhere to go from here, or who may be unsure what their next step is,” explained John Petit, managing attorney for the housing team at Legal Aid. “We’re here as experts to provide advice, but also as community members who can help point people in the right direction and make their transition easier.”

The event, which will take place across the street from the Washington Towne Homes complex in Nimisilla Park Gazebo, is focused on answering residents’ questions and helping them navigate the process of relocating.

“One of the advantages of being a non-profit law firm is our connection to other community organizations,” shared Steven McGarrity, executive director of Legal Aid. “We don’t just help clients who need representation in court rooms – we help connect people with the resources and services they need, through our collaborations with other local non-profits and social services programs.”

The event will take place on Tuesday, April 18, from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. at the Nimisilla Park Gazebo. Anyone interested is encouraged to attend. For more information or to see the meeting listing on our Events page, click here.
