Colleen Mckee Espinosa is a single mother of three who is facing foreclosure after CitiBank refused to accept payment on her mortgage, having moved up the due date for her payment without her knowledge. They then added thousands of dollars in attorney fees because the home went into foreclosure, making it impossible for her to catch up.

Colleen and her family have lived in their Northeast Minneapolis home for 16 years, and although she only has six years left to pay off her home, the bank has been unwilling to modify her mortgage so that she and her family can stay in their community.

Colleen has worked as a registered nurse for over 25 years, serving and caring for others, and now she needs our support.

"I have decided that I'm not leaving my home until we get a good faith negotiation. I'm fighting to send the message to other people not to give up, because if you're isolated you can't fight these people." Said Mckee. "I'd tell the banks they better watch out because people are catching on to their game and a lot of people are going to fight back now."
