  • From the New York Times:  Unemployment brings people closer to homelessness http://nyti.ms/cQsZgn
  • More Than One Million Homeowners Counseled by National Foreclosure Mitigation Counseling Program: http://bit.ly/9JsXf9
  • Ending Homelessness Through Public Policy. An interview with Nan Roman of the National Alliance to End Homelessness http://ow.ly/2nDPz
