The COVID-19 pandemic has taken its toll on individuals, families and businesses.
It caused a negative economic ripple effect that can be felt by all of us. We know, as a community, how critical it is for individuals and families not to lose their homes to foreclosure during times like these.
We all saw the thousands of homes lost here in our city and state after the Great Recession, and we cannot afford for that to happen again. It is a traumatic process that, in the worst-case scenario, can increase the number of homeless people in our community, putting further strain on limited social services.
