The Project

The foreclosure crisis disproportionately affects low-income and minority communities, nationally and in Alameda and Contra Costa Counties. Immigrants face a higher occurrence of victimization for abusive practices due to language and cultural differences. Adetunji provided direct services to immigrants in these counties, identifying violations of housing and consumer protections and advocating for loan modification to keep clients in their homes.
