  • 45,900 families becoming homeowners as the result of NCRC’s foreclosure prevention and housing counseling services
  • Community development training for over 3,000 community groups
  • Continuous lobbying to prevent abusive banking practices and advocacy to support legislation and programs promoting the rights of working and low-income families

Immediately following the meeting, Foster will conduct community organizing training. She will discuss how to work with banks to obtain financing for community organizations and projects.  There is no charge for this training.
