The nation’s foreclosure crisis hit homeowners in the Los Angeles metropolitan area particularly hard. I have been working with my colleagues in Congress to take action to help families stay in their homes, and help revitalize our communities that have been impacted by the crisis.
The economic crisis has produced a record need for housing assistance. As a Member of the House Committee on Appropriations, I strongly support increased funding for affordable housing programs that provide shelter and services to those left vulnerable by these difficult economic times. I have also worked over the years to provide critical federal resources to local non-profits who do the difficult work of assisting homeless men, women and children in our communities.
If you, or someone you know, is in danger of foreclosure and needs assistance, please contact LA County Neighborworks at 213-381-2862 for counseling services.
