FRIDAY, JUNE 18, 2010

The American Dream has become a nightmare for hundreds and hundreds of New Yorkers in danger of losing their homes. Edda Lopez-Lennards was one of those New Yorkers. Widowed, disabled and unemployed, she was trying desperately to hold on to her home in the University Heights section of The Bronx. Fortunately, Legal Aid staff attorney Justin Haines and an incredible support network of churches, a union, and community organizations came to the rescue.
