About Our Auction
Imagine the fear, desperation, and panic that comes with not knowing where you’re going to lay your head at night or where your next meal will come from. Further, imagine if you were a parent and responsible for the lives of small children and were unable to provide them with a safe place to call home.
Most Americans are only one crisis away from homelessness and lack
a sufficient amount of savings to cover emergency costs.
"Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, about 12% of mortgage holder households and 18% of renter households have missed their mortgage or rent payments in the past month. This stands in sharp contrast with the 4% and 7% respective missed or late payment rates in the last three months of 2017" (UC Riverside, School of Public Policy, 2020)." Housing insecurity is a growing problem, and its effects are felt throughout our community.
