Foreclosure Trends and Remedies in Baltimore

Foreclosure Trends and Remedies in Baltimore

Monday, March 07, 2011, 12:00 - 1:30 PM

High levels of unemployment, rising foreclosures and an uneven housing market continue to threaten the gains made in revitalizing many Baltimore neighborhoods. This leads to a cascade of negative impacts including families losing their homes, falling property values and neighborhood decline.    

Join us for lunch and a discussion organized by the Baltimore Neighborhood Collaborative to learn how organizations are coming together to help individuals mitigate the impacts of foreclosure and to help neighborhoods reclaim vacant property.  The session will provide (1) current foreclosure and housing market data, (2) an update on Neighborhood Stabilization, a program that provides $26 million to a Baltimore consortium to purchase and rehab foreclosed vacant properties, and (3) an overview of community outreach and housing counseling that have proven as effective tools to help reach neighborhood residents at risk.  

This program is for Maryland Philanthropy Network members only and invited guests.  Lunch will be served.
