The Project

I am working in Milwaukee’s Metcalfe Park neighborhood to mitigate the harm from foreclosures on the community. Metcalfe Park is one of the poorest areas of Milwaukee and also one of the areas most impacted by foreclosures. When we began the project, I anticipated litigating foreclosure defenses, but it has become clear that most Metcalfe homeowners have already lost their houses. Now, the goal is to mitigate the harm from abandoned homes while defending the few homeowners left in the neighborhood.
