Celestee Young Tate, 43, mother of a nine-year old girl named Shanelle did not have any idea about foreclosures until it changed her life. The mother and daughter have been practically living alone since Celestee and her husband, Shanelle’s father, separated. The Tates shared an apartment with another family until Celestee was granted a salary increase from her temporary work.

With the promise of higher income, mother and daughter moved to a new apartment. This time, they did not have to share the apartment with anyone. But after a few days in their new place, Celestee received a letter from a real estate agency. It was a message informing her that the building she and her daughter are staying in is considered to be one of the foreclosure properties that the agency have.

Celestee seeked the help of her brother, Al Young, who is the vice president of a mortgage lender company in Los Angeles. With the help of her brother’s friend, the siblings were informed that Celestee’s landlord was served with the foreclosure papers two days before Celestee have signed the lease contract.

Celestee still tried to find ways to look for an apartment even if she does not have extra earnings. In May, she received a postcard from Re/Max United, the agency that is handling foreclosed homes in the area, telling her that she should vacate the house A.S.A.P. since the house is now bank owned.

Afraid that she and her daughter might be transferred to a shelter, she consulted with a housing court. She initially planned to request for an extension of her tenure. It is in this time that she learned of Children’s Aid Society. Seeing that her weekly income of $135 and monthly Social Security payment of $850 that her daughter receives from her disabled father, the organization knew that the Tates can barely make ends meet.

The organization took steps to help Celestee out of the problems of foreclosure homes. They moved the Tates to a new apartment, shouldered the $1,000 broker’s fee, $1,000 for the first monthly rent and $1,000 security deposit. The agency also pays the minimum $351.50 electricity bill payment.

Now that they are in a better situation, the Tates are actually thankful with the foreclosure problem that came in their way.
