Newport, Rhode Island - November 6, 2008

 

Local Realtors and mortgage lenders gathered for cocktails at Sardella's Restaurant in Newport, RI to raise money for the Community Housing Resource Board, an outreach organization which assists low and moderate income residents of Newport County who are seeking fuel assistance, as well as affordable or emergency housing. 

 

Attorney J. Russell Jackson of Jackson Law, Ltd., organized the event, which helped raise over $700.00 for the non-profit organization.  "With our difficult economy, and the unpredictability of fuel costs in the coming months, I know that the Community Housing Resource Board will be facing unprecedented demands this winter.  It is imperative that we support these type of organizations which help those in our own community get through troubling times", said Jackson.

 

Founded in 1978 by Newport Police Officer Jimmy Winters, the "Housing Hotline" also assists tenants with landlord issues, fair housing complaints, evictions and emergency funds to prevent utility shut offs.  The Board also plays an integral part in working with local municipalities to realize their long-term neighborhood revitalization efforts and upgrade their affordable housing plans.
