It's moving day for Tim Henry, and 25 other Lincoln families living in at an apartment complex near 56th and Benton.

On Friday they were served eviction notices, giving them less than four days to vacate. For tenants like Henry, a construction worker recently laid off, the stress is overwhelming.

He says, "thank God that a couple of friends [who are] going to give us a little bit of time to stay with them and hopefully we can figure something out, but you know, thank God that came through but there's people around here that don't know where they are going."

Mother of two, Kendra Novotny is one of those people.

"I'm just devastated, I mean I have two small children and I don't know where to take them, what to do, how to bathe them, clothe them, feed them," she says.

Along with the eviction notices, tenants received court papers stating the bank had foreclosed on the property.

Henry says the owner of the property has stopped responding to his text messages.

Both Henry and Novotny had just made rent payments, which they will not get back.

With filled boxes and trucks loaded, Henry says that for now, sticking together and helping one another is their only solution.
