Story of Justice: Fred

Fred*, a 68-year-old senior, was in jeopardy of losing the house where he had lived for 35 years. The senior was unable to afford the mortgage payments after the death of his partner and fell behind. CCLA attorneys contacted the mortgage company to negotiate a payment schedule and referred the senior to the Goodman Jewish Family Services for assistance. The Jim Moran Foundation Grant provided the senior with financial assistance to bring his mortgage payments current and save his home from going into foreclosure. In October 2018, the senior paid off his first mortgage, thereby freeing up $800 of his monthly income. These funds are enough to sustain payments for the remaining mortgage on the property.
