Because of Baltimore City’s backward policies, Deana Woodward and her 10-year-old son, Liam, are on the brink of losing the only house they’ve ever called home.
This is an outrageous situation where the City sold off the home for $10,500 because of unpaid water bills — and now Ms. Woodward and Liam face the threat of eviction.
Ms. Woodward and her family have owned this home for over 50 years — they paid off the mortgage, pay their taxes, and were contesting the overdue water bills even as the City sold the property for a fraction of its true value in a closed auction designed for hedge funds and out-of-town investors.
Former Maryland Deputy Attorney General Thiru Vignarajah is fighting on their behalf and has won them some time.
But their fate is uncertain, and they need to raise funds to help the family regain their precious home, either by buying it back or by winning it back in court.
Thank you in advance for your generosity. Let’s come together to help Ms. Woodward and Liam in their time of need.
Here’s a Washington Post story about their plight.
