Annual Health Expo Set For August 3

The NAACP DeKalb County Branch and Commissioner Larry Johnson invite the DeKalb County Community to join us on August 3, 2019, at the Galleria at South DeKalb Mall for our ANNUAL HEALTH EXPO.

Cherry Willis, Health Committee Chairperson

This expo provides the community with free health checks and education.  Cherry Willis, Health Committee Chairperson with the NAACP Dekalb County Branch said, “This free event is important for our community because it allows families to work with health professionals to detect problems early and plan for a healthy life.  The health professionals at this event have been able to find illnesses early in some families and even prevented the diseases from getting worse.” SEE FULL STORY

Housing Scams and Renter’s Rights

NAACP DeKalb spoke with attorneys from Atlanta Legal Aid Society about what you can do to avoid getting scammed with housing purchases or rentals. See The Videos


Home-purchases and rental transactions both involve large amounts of cash, and cash attracts scammers.  Most people are inexperienced in this area of their life and should be wary of “special deals” and fast financing options.   There are predatory lenders in the marketplace that can challenge your knowledge with mortgage scams, bait-n-switch scams, mortgage fraud, and Loan Officers screw-ups.  Renting a house or apartment can present challenges as well.  How can you avoid being scammed or bilked out of large sums of money when purchasing or renting?  SEE FULL STORY
