Posted by Self-Sufficiency Research Clearinghouse on September 22, 2014

Webinar focuses on how foreclosure affects households

On September 25, 2014 at 2:00 PM EDT, the Self-Sufficiency Research Clearinghouse will feature Dr. Hannah Thomas in a Webinar titled The Great Recession Hits Home: Asset Depletion and Foreclosure in Boston, with Dr. Curtis Skinner as a discussant. Despite general improvements in the economy, foreclosures continue to impact families and communities across the country. In this Webinar, Dr. Thomas will explore the ways that foreclosure affects households, including finances, health, trust in lending institutions, and stability. Based on interviews with families in Boston, MA, the Scholar will relay her findings as to why households in foreclosure often end up spending their hard-earned savings and wealth in a process of asset depletion.
