hey are people who are dealing with problems that haven’t gone away from the housing crash more than eight years ago or homeowners who are facing foreclosure for the first time.

“You’re not going to get through this entire process unscathed,” said Venicia Considine, Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada.
