The Orozcos came to us in the fall of 2013 when they were facing possible eviction from their Southwest Detroit home during a time of economic distress. The federally-owned mortgage giant Fannie Mae had taken over, and an eviction hearing was set for December.
DED and supporters from UAW Local 600 marched through the neighborhood and onto the West Vernor business district in the heart of Southwest Detroit. As we passed the Orozco home, Mrs. Orozco and her son passed out cups of hot chocolate! With support from Eviction Defense, the family got a settlement they’re very happy with. They continue to offer strong backing to other distressed families.
