The organization will have offices in Poughkeepsie and Kingston with satellite offices in Orange and Sullivan counties.
“There are many people who have lost their homes. We are trying to save people in their homes,” said Gail Webster, executive director of Hudson River Housing, one of the sponsoring nonprofit agencies.
The others are Rural Ulster Preservation Co., or RUPCO, and Legal Services of the Hudson Valley.
The program will be in full force as the next wave hits. Kevin O’Connor, executive director of RUPCO, said, “We know that the worst of the foreclosures are still ahead of us, with the peak in 2009.”
