“After I was threatened with eviction from the home that me and my 82-year-old mother have lived in for 27 years, IMPACCT Brooklyn’s community organizers guided me through housing court and other services. They were there with me every step of the way. They pointed me in the right direction, kept me focused, and told me what I needed to do to save my apartment.”
