As a member of the House Appropriations Committee, I strongly support increased funding for affordable housing programs that provide shelter and services to those in difficult economic circumstances. I have also worked over the years to provide critical federal resources to local non-profits that assist homeless men, women, and children in our communities.
The nation’s foreclosure crisis hit homeowners in the Los Angeles metropolitan area particularly hard. I have been working with my congressional colleagues to help families stay in their homes, and to help revitalize our communities that have been impacted by the crisis.
If you, or someone you know, is in danger of foreclosure and needs assistance, please contact LA County NeighborWorks at (888) 895-2647 for counseling services, or visit them online at http://www.nhslacounty.org/programs-and-services.
