Video: No Closure in Home Foreclosure

October 14, 2013 By Briana Johnson, Video Production Specialist

Neighbors, supporters, friends and family gather in Jaymie Kelly’s yard to stop her from being evicting from her home after living there for 30 years. Abandoned homes are very dangerous to have in the community it increases crime and lowers the value of surrounding homes in the neighborhood. There are so many homeless people living on the streets in our community, yet we have so many empty homes in the city due to foreclosures, we need to change that and make sure that these empty homes have families living in them.
