    This is a complex situation. Perhaps it would have been better to coordinate with service and faith-based groups who could provide consistent and local contact. Rather than FEMA money going to people who don't use it for its intended purposes, service based organizations could more closely oversee the money to ensure its wise utilization.

    Service groups could also counsel with people on their options. Perhaps the best option is to foreclose the property and start over elsewhere.
