Mortgage Fraud, Foreclosure, and Neighborhood Stabilization
November 15, 2008
On November 13th Westview neighbors Scott Smith and Patrick Berry were invited to participate in a panel discussion about Mortgage Fraud and the Neighborhood Stabilization Program at Morehouse College. The event started with a screening of the documentary “When A House Is Not A Home,” produced and directed by neighboring West End residents Brent Brewer and Paulette Richards. The screening was followed by a panel discussion and Q&A about mortgage fraud, foreclosure, and the recently announced HUD program called Neighborhood Stabilization program. Scott Smith contributed with his knowledge about mortgage fraud based on his years of research about the topic. Patrick Berry contributed his knowledge about the Neighborhood Stabilization Program and how this grant money may help neighborhoods like Westview fill empty, foreclosed houses with homeowners.
