It's a hard time to be a homeowner on the brink.
Nationally, foreclosures in March were up 47 percent from a year ago. Kansas' 447 foreclosures in March ranked 35th in the nation; the monthly total was up 5.6 percent from February.
The trend is reflected locally. So far in 2007, officials say, there have been 52 foreclosures in Douglas County, compared with 88 in 2006.
The Journal-World and 6News are asking for your help telling this story.
We're looking for people who have experienced foreclosure - how it happened and what advice you would have for others in similar situations. We also want to hear from those who found themselves caught up in a subprime loan that became unmanageable.
