Springfield Organization Holds a “No Eviction Sit-in”
SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – A Springfield family facing eviction got a lot of support from residents Thursday night.
“Springfield No One Leaves” was there to support the Turner family at their home on Donbray Street. The organization fights for Springfield families facing eviction to keep their homes.
Christopher Turner said, “We can pay, that’s the thing, and we are out of this financial hardship, but we’re past that point of no return in Fannie Mae’s eyes. We’re tying to stay here and say, listen, we can pay, why won’t you negotiate with us?”
Turner said although banks offer home buy back programs, they don’t give residents enough time.
The Turner’s are going to be evicted Tuesday morning, but residents will continue to rally in opposition.
