I have no idea where I would be without the support and the camaderie from MFA's meetings as we battle through America's mortgage nightmares.

Manny's work ethic, non-judgmental care, willingness to help everyone is beyond almost anything I have ever seen in human services -- and I used to manage one of the Bay Area's larger fundraisers for non-profits! It was embarrassing to ask for help after a lifetime of working for what I need. But asking didn't matter . . . until I found MFA, I did not qualify for anyone's "program." Absolutely no one else offered any help. Worse, were it up to at least one other non-profit legal advocacy group, I would have lost my home: the director of that group handed me a one-page timeline on when I could expect to lose my home.

After two years of battling to save my home, I received a loan modification as a result of Marin Family Action's contacts. Lenders do not want to modify loans and they renege whenever possible. My lender actually tried to wiggle out of it, but they ultimately said they are going to stick by their Modification Agreement!
