Who We Are

Since 1968, Westchester Residential Opportunities, Inc. (WRO) has championed the expansion of non-discriminatory housing opportunities in our region for low- and moderate-income households, minorities, senior citizens and persons with disabilities, including psychiatric disabilities. WRO is a HUD approved Housing Counseling Agency, a licensed real estate broker and a United Way agency. All of our housing services for consumers are free (except for credit reports and first-time Home Buying educational material) and are funded by government grants, private contributions and corporate support.

WRO’s homeownership counseling can prepare you to buy a home

WRO is a HUD approved housing counseling agency offering first time home buying education to potential home buyers. WRO’s Homebuying program is designed to assist potential buyers in reviewing their household’s overall financial situation and preparing them for homeownership.

Independent Living Program

WRO’s Independent Living Program assists psychiatrically disabled clients with housing issues and helps them obtain needed services.

Mortgage/Foreclosure Default Counseling

WRO intervenes on behalf of homeowners in danger of mortgage foreclosure and may help financially with mortgage arrears. WRO encourages homeowners to attend our Mortgage Default Orientation Sessions to learn about the process and have an opportunity for Q&A with a counselor.

Fair Housing

Where you live is your choice. Federal, state, and county fair housing laws protect you when you are looking for a place to live and while you are living in your house, co-op, condo, or apartment. WRO works to protect your rights if you live, or are looking for a place to live, in Westchester, Putnam, or Rockland counties in New York State.
