The devastation of foreclosure; what can be done
Hosts Cecil Prescod and Celeste Carey speak with Nancie Koerber of the non-profit organization Good Grief America which works to fight foreclosure and to support our communities.
Housing was the vehicle that Wall Street used to drain the life out of America. The result has caused record unemployment, foreclosures, homelessness and the unweaving of our community fiber. All linked to this issue are increased suicides, divorces, bankruptcies, and small business failure. Our community services such as food stamps, unemployment, foster care, homeless shelters and many others are over burdened and unable to meet the needs of struggling families.
Nancie discusses what happens with foreclosure in Oregon, how individuals and families deal with the experience, how communities can help and what the future holds regarding this issue.
