“Virtual Counselor Network” Transforms Professional Housing Counseling For Low-to-Moderate Income Communities In San Diego And The Inland Empire

According to DataQuick, current research shows that 8,000 homeowners across the affected area have received foreclosure notices in recent months, while 16.2 percent are unemployed and another 16 percent live below the poverty line as reported by the U.S. Census Bureau - American FactFinder.

"As nonprofit organizations find new ways to use technology to help more people, I believe this program will empower our local communities and provide innovative solutions to help meet the diverse needs of residents throughout the region," said San Diego City Council President Todd Gloria.

“Through our partnership with Citi, we will have the opportunity to utilize technology to provide timely, relevant and sustainable solutions to problems facing our communities,” says Housing Opportunities Collaborative President & Executive Director Appaswamy “Vino” Pajanor. "At the same time, we will achieve a triple bottom line benefit through the VCN by helping more residents access diverse services faster, minimizing the travel time and lowering the costs for nonprofit service providers to serve more customers."

Local residents and homeowners can learn more and access the Virtual Counselor Network now at www.VirtualCounselorNetwork.org.
