She is a sophomore at Divine Savior Holy Angels High School, where she is involved in track, cross country, Latin club, and Irish club.
No one likes it and no one wants to hear about it. Sadly, it’s becoming a lot more prevalent in the lives of people in our neighborhood. Four houses (that I know of) within about a mile of my house have been foreclosed on just in the last several months.
Families who have been living in their homes for decades are being forced out because of financial situations that are sometimes beyond their own control. This includes things such as losing a job or health issues, both of which happened to people who live within two blocks of me.
