TORRINGTON, CT (WFSB) -A Torrington widow and her children said they are about to be kicked out of their home.
Beth Profeta said she has money to make partial payments, but needs her loan modified and keeps running into road blocks.
The front yard of Profeta's residence on New Harwinton Rd has turned to one big public plea. In bright pink, she's looking for any way to save her home.
"All of my bills are current except for my mortgage," Profeta said.
The monthly mortgage is $1,600. When her husband was diagnosed with appendix cancer in 2009, they could tell they needed to modify the loan. Profeta said she was looking to adjust the mortgage by $600.
"I can do under $1,000," Profeta said. "I can't do $1600, and pay the bills and feed my family."
But Profeta said Wells Fargo refused to modify.
"They say I don't have enough income coming in, which I do," Profeta said. "I know I can make it work."
Profeta said not only would Wells Fargo not budge, they told her, to stop paying altogether, so she hasn't paid any money to the bank since September 2011.
"I was told they won't accept it," Profeta said. "I don't have it in writing, but that's what I was told."
"I don't know why a bank would say something like that," said Eric Chatman, who is the president with the Connecticut Housing Finance Authority.
Chatman said that shouldn't be happening on Friday, but people Eyewitness News spoke with in the state's banking department told the station who said the advice to "not pay" if you can't pay in full was not uncommon in the past.
Now, facing foreclosure, Profeta said she isn't losing this home without a fight and has taken the battle public. The signs in the front of her lawn have got the attention of hundreds in Torrington.
"This is my family. This is my heart and soul," Profeta said. "Our blood sweat and tears are in this house."
Profeta said she is still looking for help and the state's housing finance authority may be able to provide it. It's already saved 100 homes from being lost to foreclosure this year.
Eyewitness News put Profeta in touch with state housing officials, who said she needs to show a loss of income and a reasonable chance of re-payment.
"It seems reasonable," Chatman said. "If someone can pay $1,000, we can top off the $600. There are plenty of cases in which we are helping people that way.
Eyewitness News did reach out to Wells Fargo national and the local branch in Waterbury, and haven't heard back.
If you find yourself in a similar situation, officials with the Connecticut Housing Finance Authority said they are willing to help. Interested parties can call them at 860-721-9501, email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit its website, www.chfa.org.
