DETROIT (WWJ) – A 101-year-old Detroit woman who was forced to leave her home due to foreclosure will be back in that home in a few weeks.

Texana Hollis had to leave her long-time home after her son failed to make tax payments. But “Say Detroit” stepped in, bought the house back for her, and is remodeling it.

Hollis had a chance to see the renovations on Wednesday.

“Lord … I’m just so thankful to each and every one of you who had a hand in me getting my house back,” she said, through tears.

“Words can’t express how I feel about getting my house back – and especially my kitchen. My mother had me cooking when I was 10 years old and I loved it,” Hollis said.

Donations can be made to Hollis through Say Detroit at this link.
