26 Lincoln apartments evicted, residents outraged

Twenty-six Lincoln families have four days to find a new place to live.

The units at an apartment complex near 56th and Benton were tagged with orange eviction notices Friday morning. The majority of those residents are families; many with children.

"I'm devastated because they have no where to go. I mean what are all these people gonna do," Vernadine Taylor said.

Taylor's son lives in one of the units. He has two kids; one is a newborn with a heart condition who just got home from the hospital. Now the family has until Tuesday to find a new place to live.

"My son being homeless with his babies that has nothing!" Taylor said.

The stories are all the same of the 150 or so people being evicted. Some just paid $1,200 to move in last month. Others just put down a $500 deposit to move in next month. According to them, all of that money is now gone.

Attached to the eviction notice Friday were court documents explaining that the bank had foreclosed on the buildings.

Tim Henry is outraged.

"We've all been current. We've all been paying rent. We don't get our rent back. We don't get a deposit back and we have to vacate the area. This is not our problem. The bank should have gave us some more notice or somebody should have gave us more notice," Henry said.

With Tuesday quickly approaching, no one has any idea where they'll go or how they'll pay for it. Their only hope now is that someone will answer their prayers.

The residents have contacted the City Mission. They've been told there's no room them because the shelter is completely full.
