Home repossession hurts community

It is very disturbing to see the houses for sale and rent in the area. Scary that a lot of folks have to lose their homes and no one can help them, yet banks turn around and sell them for a price that might have saved the people losing them. Why can't we do something right and help the folks save their homes? Isn't it the American dream to own a home and live in a nice place?

Modesto and surrounding areas have the ability to do something. The problem hurts everyone.
