Cassandra is a single mom with an ailing mother living with her. She found herself living in a deteriorating apartment building in foreclosure and suffering from several legal issues due to these circumstances. Thanks to her patience and perseverance and the incredible work of LCBH’s legal and supportive services team, Cassandra was able to move out of the foreclosed building, resolve her legal issues, receive damages and move into a substantially better apartment. Her “foreclosure eviction” filings were sealed and she is now able to move on with her life.
