Support and Promote the Quality of Life and the Local Economy, cont.
Pasadena Housing Resource Center, a collaboration of the City of Pasadena and
the County of Los Angeles, is a new, online method for people to quickly and
easily find moderately priced and below-rental-rate housing in Pasadena and
throughout Los Angeles County. The free site at
www.pasadenahousingsearch.com is especially helpful to Section 8
voucher holders who want to find landlords who accept the vouchers; and for
housing locators who work with hard-to-place, special-needs clients.
Every Pasadena resident deserves access to decent, safe and affordable housing
for their long-term well being and the stability of the community. With more
than 500 Pasadena home mortgages in default, the City of Pasadena co-sponsored
the Save Your Home workshop in March to help residents prevent foreclosure.
Participants received home loan reviews and debt counseling by representatives
from local lending institutions as well as guidance from representatives of the
Housing Rights Center, L.A. County Tax Assessorís Office and L.A. County
Department of Consumer Affairs.
