Foreclosure Prevention

If your property is in foreclosure, or is at risk of foreclosure because you have fallen substantially behind in your mortgage payments, you may feel helpless and discouraged. As a result, many people respond to the Notice of the Intent to Foreclose that they receive from their lenders by doing nothing at all, hoping perhaps that things will somehow just work out in their favor.

Clear The Way Supportive Housing Corp, a 501c(3) helps you to understand your options, even if your home is currently in foreclosure. You still have the chance to emerge from your situation without having a foreclosure or bankruptcy on your record. By making the best possible decisions given your circumstances, you may be able to achieve a fresh start with a bright and secure financial future ahead of you.

Time, however, is not on your side. The longer you wait to explore your options, the fewer that will be available to you. As a homeowner, you have rights – but in order to protect them, you must first be aware of them.

Homelessness Prevention

We aim to prevent homelessness by opening and operating various homeless shelters on long island. We currently have Daniels House, a shelter on Park Ave in Roosevelt for small families. It operates entirely on donations.

At Daniels House we not only shelter the families but we also give them a better quality of life. When they need to visit their families, they are provided with Uber's. When they have a job interview they wear fitted and appropriate attire.

Donations are not only monetary however. We are always in need of food, new bedding, new kitchen supplies, tooth brushes, anything you can think of even the small things that others might over look. Cleanliness is very important in improving morale in homeless individuals and making them feel like they have a home.

Since opening we have seen over 100 families come and go, and are able to find housing for 85% of them.

Zombie Home Initiative

Our zombie home initiatives goal is to take "zombie homes" (Blighted abandoned town owned properties) and prevent them from being demolished. Instead we aim to rehab these homes and take the eye sore out of the community. This goes a long way overall in improving the quality of life for entire communities, and prevent people from squatting in these dangerous obstructions.

When it is possible we turn zombie homes into homeless shelters after they are rehabilitated. Daniels House started out as one of these. Squatters in the zombie home were selling drugs out of it and committing crimes which clearly impacted the community in a negative way. But thanks to our intervention we turned something that hurts the homeless in the community into something that helps them instead.

Our initiative will always be one of our greatest accomplishments and with the help of community leaders in the area we continually identify and fix these problems.
