Dear Wells Fargo,
My name is Jessica English. I am a single mother of four, student, writer and dedicated worker. Despite my hard work – stocking shelves, earning A’s in school, mowing lawns, cleaning houses, writing and publishing social commentary for Minnesota Public Radio, and coordinating volunteers - years of poverty have left my family homeless.
Dear OCWEN Loan Servicing,
My name is Genet Beyene and when I first moved to South Minneapolis in 1997 as a single mother with my son, I was afraid. But over the years, I saw how people in South care about the quality of their neighborhood and support one another. I grew to love this area, and in 2000, I put a downpayment on the perfect home where I could raise my son. He was 4 years old when I bought this house. We laugh about how he used to scare me when he climbed high into the tree in the front yard; he loves it here, this house holds all of his memories.
Dear M&T Bank,
My name is Gayle Lindsey. I live in South Minneapolis with my daughter, grandson and step son. I have lived here since May 2001. I have eleven grandchildren. I have worked as a nursing assistant at Walker Methodist Medical Center for the last twenty years. I am getting close to retirement. I planned on having a place to call home for some time, but now I am facing foreclosure.
