As of this week, 1 million new foreclosures have been filed in 2009, according to estimates by the Center for Responsible Lending, a nonprofit research and policy organization dedicated to preserving home ownership.

A new foreclosure starts every 13 seconds – nearly 6,500 a day.

“It’s easy to think, ‘Well, that’s tough luck for the families that lose their homes.’ The truth is that foreclosures are costing neighboring families hundreds of billions of dollars and dragging down the entire economy,” says Michael Calhoun, president of CRL.

Calhoun called on lenders and loan servicers to utilize the tools offered by the U.S. government to keep people in their homes.
