Chicago’s quiet home-liberation front.. Aug 21, 2012.. by.. Laura Gottesdiener.. “Where’s the house?” Trisha James asked, leaning forward eagerly.. She couldn’t contain her urgency; living each day house-to-house in Chicago’s poorest neighborhoods had taken its toll.. The shelters.. The overcrowding.. The uncertainty of whether anyone would even open the door.. The friend’s small house where James was staying that day, during a record-breaking heat wave, had 10 adult occupants, a rotating cast of their children and no indoor plumbing.. Martha Biggs smiled at her friend knowingly.. Both women had been evicted from Cabrini Green, the city’s now-demolished housing complex, and spent years as homeless mothers.. She knew that James would like the house, a modest Bank of NY Mellon-owned home on the South Side that had yet to be completely stripped for parts and trashed by gangs.. The team had already secured it.. Biggs and her right-hand man, John Newman, weren’t working for any social service agency.. To get a house this way, you have to work for it — buy the locks, paint the walls, fix the broken steps, clean out the trash.. Rally some teenagers to help you put up drywall, if necessary.. You have to understand that this isn’t just about finding a place to live; it’s about fixing up the neighborhood, making jobs, changing the whole idea of housing.. And then you have to pass the knowledge on: another house, another family.. In short, you have to join.. Atlanta: Demand Wells Fargo Negotiate With Steve! CALL NOW!.. Jul 26, 2012..
