Street Roots and 211 Info are proud partners, and work closely to make sure the most up-to-date resources, including the Rose City Resource Guide is accurate and able to help those in need. The following was an e-mail sent out by 211 Info today.
Yesterday, 211info received an all time record number of calls for foreclosure assistance on the state’s 1-800-SafeNet line. And, as of a couple of minutes ago, today’s foreclosure call volume ranks third.
Recent news coverage of $88 million in foreclosure assistance funds released by the federal government was the main driver of call volume.
Days like yesterday and today are a perfect reminder. There is great need in our region for an easy access point for information about foreclosure counseling and other needs associated with the worst economy since the Great Depression.
Too many people are unaware of the services that exist to help them — like free or low-cost, HUD-certified foreclosure counseling, food box programs or unemployment services.
Help us continue to spread word about 211info by forwarding this email to colleagues, friends and families and ask them to sign up for our email updates so they can stay connected. 211info cuts through the clutter of a community service system that can be frustrating to navigate and makes it easy for individuals, families and seniors to get the help they need.
