Church, HUD, major banks provide safe haven for families in need.

The latest family foreclosure assistance event will take place on Tuesday, December 15 from 3pm to 8pm at St. Stephen Presbyterian Church in Chatsworth, California. The event is the fourth in a series of free foreclosure relief workshops that began last summer as major banks, the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), all came together in a unique setting to help families in need explore ways to save their homes.

"This program was designed to provide free assistance and relief to those hit hardest by the current economic recession," said Clif Cartland St. Stephen Outreach Director. "Families have expressed to us their heartfelt thanks that our church has opened its doors to provide a safe haven where they can communicate openly with their banks in an effort to save their homes," continued Cartland.

This latest event will not only include individual family interviews and foreclosure relief assessments, but the church is also helping by directing families to a variety of vital social "safety nets" to assist those in greatest need. In addition, the church is offering free groceries to families who attend -- including all the fixings for a traditional Christmas dinner. It's all part of what Cartland describes as sending unconditional love to the community. "When you come alongside somebody and just simply care about them with understanding and compassion, regardless of who they are -- that's what we are called to be as Christ's people in the world."
