famillies talk with consultants fom the non-profit home loan restructuring group called "NACA" at a five day event in Los Angeles.

Oakland Mayor Jean Quan unveiled a new plan Tuesday to help deal with the city's ongoing foreclosure crisis.
 
The plan calls for sending volunteers door-to-door to reach out to about 3,500 residents at risk of losing their homes.
 
Then agencies working on foreclosure issues would provide workshops and legal services to those homeowners, and help them take advantage of the new state "Homeowner’s Bill of Rights."
 
KQED’s Cy Musiker spoke with Kevin Stein, Associate Director of the California Reinvestment Coalition, about the plan and the impact it could have on the city of Oakland.
