Helping Americans Keep Their Homes

first_img Following up on research published last year stating that housing counseling has a positive impact for homebuyers, homeowners, and renters, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has awarded $47 million in housing counseling grants to assist 1 million families in keeping their current homes, locating new ones, and making informed choices.National and regional agencies will be distributing HUD’s housing counseling grant funding to community-based organizations known primarily for working with low- and moderate-income families. The largest among these organizations are also tasked with improving the quality of counseling services for those either looking to buy or rent a home.Thirty-one national and regional organizations, six organizations working across stateliness, 19 State Housing Finance Agencies (SHFAs), and 207 local housing counseling agencies are the key recipients of these grants. HUD will award $3.5 million to four national organizations so they can train and certify more housing counselors.“HUD-approved housing counselors are on the front lines,” said HUD Secretary Ben Carson. “Their efforts give families a real opportunity to realize their dream of owning a home is obtainable by offering advice on affordable rental housing, home financing, and tools to prevent foreclosure.”Grant recipients address the entirety of families’ housing counseling needs. These include helping homebuyers: assess their readiness to enter the market; understand their financing and down payment options; as well as navigate a process that for many is confusing or overwhelming. The organizations also assist families in finding affordable rental housing, offering financial literacy courses to those with bad credit affecting their ability to secure a mortgage and purchase a home. They also help the homeless in transitional housing as well as finding a permanent place of residence.The counseling services also assist homeowners in reviewing loan documentation, helping them avoid fraudulent mortgage practices, overblown interest rates, inflated appraisals, impractical repayment terms, and anything else that might cause a  loss of equity, increased debt, default, or foreclosure. Likewise, counseling in the prevention of foreclosure is another of their specialties.While the funding is meant to reach all fifty states, certain areas stand to receive the most assistance in terms of dollars—but none more so than Washington D.C., which is to receive over $7 million of the total $47 million. States like New York and California will also receive more than $3 million, but other states that stand to benefit the most are Pennsylvania ($4.1 million), Massachusetts ($3.5 million), Michigan ($3.2 million), and Virginia ($2.349 million).To read HUD’s research on housing counseling, click here.

Leadership Matters: The new age of resiliency

first_imgWith “pandemic fog” circling home offices like a tornado from the Wizard of Oz, employees are feeling less and less resilient as work-from-home mandates continue in many states. What is pandemic fog? The term embodies the discomfort stemming from one’s capability, or lack thereof, to influence the circumstances surrounding our ever-changing environment. It is an understatement at this point to say that many of us are having difficulty understanding our global community and the questions that linger in response to the pandemic. There is fear regarding illness, political unrest and the unsettling if not bleak economic outlook. If you are a leader, you are not only taking care of yourself but also checking in with your team regularly to navigate this storm.All of us can agree that we are in unchartered waters. I have worked with hundreds of organizational leaders, and when major change or unexpected mishaps occur, I have found that the following four strategies can be very helpful to build a resilient team.Be Transparent With All CommunicationKnowledge is power. If you find yourself mimicking the “I don’t know” emoji when asked a question about the future, that’s OK. But do remind your employees what their objectives are now and discuss goals. How will the goals be achieved and what is the new plan to get there? Acknowledge that our world is changing, and you will be there to help them change with it. One of our clients has a virtual morning meeting with everyone at 9:00 a.m. to provide daily updates because things are changing so quickly. The client’s leaders do the same thing each day 15 minutes before closing. This gives employees the understanding that while they are doing their jobs, leadership is working hard to secure as much information as possible to keep the whole organization in the loop. continue reading » ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Former nursing home workers to be charged in connection patients’ deaths after 2017 Hurricane Irma

first_imgfelixmizioznikov/iStock(HOLLYWOOD, Fla.) — Four former employees of a Florida nursing home will face charges after at least 12 residents died due to unbearably hot conditions inside the center after the air conditioning stopped working following Hurricane Irma in 2017.An administrator and three nurses who previously worked at Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills are being charged. The Hollywood Police Department scheduled a news conference for Tuesday to announce what the charges would be.In October 2017, the Hollywood Police Department released 911 calls that captured the crisis at the nursing home after it had lost its air conditioning.As the calls came in, employees at the nursing home sounded increasingly frenzied as they described patients in various states of respiratory distress. By the sixth and final call, the dispatcher asked whether they’d called already.“It’s for a different patient,” the employee replied.Among those facing charges is Jorge Carballo, the nursing home’s administrator. He turned himself in on Monday to Broward County Jail.Sergo Colin, a head nurse, as well as two other nurses are also facing charges.“She did the best that she possibly could do under the circumstances,” Ilham Soffan, a lawyer for one of the nurses, told ABC News affiliate WPLG-TV on Sunday. “She actually is not a permanent employee. She came in to assist.”A lawyer for one of the accused nurses said his client would fight these accusations.“They were calling FP&L (Florida Power & Light Company). They were calling the emergency operations center from the governor’s office and they were calling the governor himself who was posting his cell phone number on television saying for people to call if there was an emergency. Those people never responded and never came,” attorney David Frankel said at a news conference Monday.The governor’s office confirmed in September 2017 that the personal cellphone of Florida Gov. Rick Scott had been called by nursing home officials, seeking assistance.“Every call made to the governor from facility management was referred to the Agency for Health Care Administration and the Florida Department of Health and quickly returned,” Scott’s communications director said previously.The center did not evacuate patients immediately as temperatures inside began rising, even though a fully functional hospital was across the street, investigators said.“It is 100 percent the responsibility of health care professionals to preserve life by acting in the best interest of the health and well-being of their patients,” the Florida Department of Health said in a statement. “Let’s be clear — this facility is located across the street from one of Florida’s largest hospitals, which never lost power and had fully operating facilities.”The center eventually did begin evacuating its more than 100 residents to hospitals on Sept. 13.More than 140 senior citizens, some still in their beds, had to be rushed to safety. Some of the patients who were admitted to the hospital had temperatures of up to 106 degrees, hospital officials told ABC News.Most of the deceased were treated for respiratory distress, dehydration and heat-related issues, officials said. Their ages ranged from 71 to 99, the Hollywood Police Department said previously.The deaths were ruled homicides and a criminal investigation was opened against the center.The center’s license was suspended days after the storm and it was later closed. Officials for the nursing home have maintained that they tried to alert authorities and the power company that they needed help but never got any.A timeline released by the public relations firm for the nursing home says that the center’s staff had reached out repeatedly to emergency hotlines and the local power utility in the days after the air conditioning system failed on Sept. 10.In September after the storm, Broward County Mayor Barbara Sharief said the center had contacted the county’s Emergency Operations Center to alert the health and medical team that it had lost power. The incident was then reported as a “mission-critical request” to Florida Power & Light for power restoration, Sharief said.Later that day, the center said it had done a survey of the property and that a tree had landed on a transformer, Sharief said. When asked by emergency workers whether they had any medical needs or emergencies, however, center officials “did not request assistance or indicate any medical emergency existed,” Sharief said.In September 2017, after the residents’ deaths, Carballo expressed his condolences to family members of the deceased and provided further details on what transpired at the nursing home.“The center and its medical and administrative staff diligently prepared for the impact of Hurricane Irma,” Carballo said in a statement at the time. “We took part in emergency management preparedness calls with local and state emergency officials, other nursing homes and health regulators. While our center did not lose power during the storm, it did lose one transformer that powers the air conditioning unit. The center immediately contacted Florida Power & Light and continued to follow up with them for status updates on when repairs would be made. Outreach was also made to local emergency officials and first responders.”The center had a generator on standby “in compliance with state regulations,” as well as seven days of food, water, ice and other supplies, including gas for the generator, Carballo added.After the air conditioning went down, staff set up “mobile cooling units and fans to cool the facility,” Carballo said. Staff also “continually checked on residents’ well-being” to ensure they were “hydrated and as comfortable as possible,” Carballo said.“We are devastated by these losses,” Carballo said in 2017. “We are fully cooperating with all authorities and regulators to assess what went wrong and to ensure our other residents are cared for.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
