Habitat for Humanity Foreclosures in Jacksonville
The Jacksonville affiliate of Habitat for Humanity, called HabiJax, foreclosed on 50 homeowners last year, following 33 in 2012 — more than the previous six years combined. Many HabiJax homeowners were not able to overcome job losses, medical expenses or tax and insurance increases that increased their housing outlays.
