UPDATE: The website for ACORN has reappeared.

ACORN, one of the largest social advocacy groups in the country, has been forced to suspend most operations as of today.

The website was down on Monday morning, but the phone number for ACORN’s New York office was still connected, offering guidance on mortgage payments, first-time home purchases, general housing inquiries and ACORN housing maintenance.

By noon on Monday, the phone message had been replaced.
