Our Goal: Find 100 HOMES in 90 DAYS that can be saved from a wrongful foreclosure.
Across the State of Florida, every day, thousands of homes are lost to foreclosure. Many of these foreclosures were wrongful: either obtained through fraud, or mistake, or because the homeowner never even knew about the foreclosure.
We want to help take these homes back.
Taking back your street from Wall Street
Inspired by lawyers who use modern DNA techniques to free innocent men and women from prison, convicted of crimes they had never committed, we want to bring that same approach to restoring families to the homes that were wrongfully taken from them.
So, we’re announcing the Hundred Homes Project. This project will search throughout the state for homes that have been wrongfully foreclosed, either by mistake, by fraud, or by other circumstance. Our goal is to identify 100 homes in the next 90 days, and immediately begin working to undo the foreclosures that took these homes from the families that once lived in them.
Will it be easy? No. But we can do it, especially if you help spread the word.
Who qualifies for the Hundred Homes Project?
Right now, we’re doing initial screening of foreclosure cases all over the State of Florida. We’re looking for cases where the foreclosure judgment has already been entered, or the house already sold. The sale date can be no more than three years ago, preferably less than two years.
Cases where the homeowner never knew about the foreclosure until it was too late are especially interesting to us. We also think we can help most in cases where there was no real attempt to defend the case—those cases are where most of the mistakes get made.
If you think you’ve got a case that qualifies, fill out an application form and send it to us.
