101-year-old woman evicted from home, government won’t let her return
Who says you can’t go home? In the case of 101-year-old Detroit resident Texana Hollis, the federal government. The woman, who lived in her home for 60 years, was evicted from her home in September by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development after she was unable to pay property taxes on her reverse mortgage. A couple days later, she was told she could return home, but HUD later said her home was in such disrepair that they wouldn’t allow it. But all is not lost; other agencies might be able to help fix the home up. Hollis, meanwhile, is staying with a friend who offered her a free room. Where’s Ty Pennington when you need him? (photo by John T. Greilick/Detroit News/AP)
