Threatened with foreclosure? DON'T LEAVE !!!

A couple of weeks back Amy Goodman wrote an op-ed piece about foreclosure and she said in it -- DON'T LEAVE, SQUAT! And Ms. Manitoba agrees wholeheartedly with her.

And now I read in my local rag that Acorn (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now) is launching a campaign to encourage families in foreclosure to refuse to leave their homes. They recently staged a rally in my home town, Oakland -- at the home of someone who was foreclosed but not evicted. And they've held similar rallies at homes in Los Angeles, New York, Tucson, Baltimore, Orlando, and Houston. Acorn is urging a moratorium on foreclosures.

We agree. Let's have a moratorium on foreclosures.

If you are having trouble paying your mortgage -- there is help out there.

Acorn has a new website totally dedicated to helping folks with foreclosure problems. Here's what they say on their website:

Acorn Housing Home Equity Loss Prevention (HELP) foreclosure counselors are ready to intervene on your behalf with your lender to bring your loan current. We have established relationships with 43 major lenders in the U.S. in order to better serve you. Last year, we helped over 20,000 families restructure their mortgages to have lower house payments. And this year we will help thousands more keep the
equity they've built up in their homes.
They're services are free!

Are you secure in your home and would like to help others? Why not donate to Acorn? Click here for information on how to do that.
