Thousands of hard-working families across the Bay Area lost their homes and livelihoods during the downturn. To stem the tide of foreclosures, we launched the Foreclosure Prevention and Neighborhood Preservation program. Over the last two years, we granted $3 million to nonprofits that provide essential counseling services and legal assistance in the hardest hit low-income communities and communities of color. We’ve also invested in advocates who champion public policies to protect vulnerable families, and to promote reinvestment and innovative housing solutions.
Impact: Thousands of homeowners counseled and hundreds of foreclosures prevented. Policy and advocacy traction at local, state, and national levels.
