Michael Benthin, like millions of other people, lost his job at the start of the housing crash, and fell behind on his payments to Bank of America. For three years, he tried to work with the bank on a loan modification. He was given the usual run-a-round from Bank of America and now faces eviction on Monday, April 29. The Benthins live in Portage,MI, which is adjacent to Kalamazoo. Micheal’s friends and neighbors are coming together to to support him and his family. He is working with Occupy Kalamazoo and other groups. Actions will be announced this week. In the meantime, please show your support by taking a few minutes to do the following
