Special Thanks to the kind people at

Time is running out for
Bill Stephens. We need
your help today...

Bill Stephens has been a pillar of the McHenry County
Illinois Community for over 30 years. He's lived in
the same home for 31 years. He's losing that home
thanks to shady loopholes in Illinois mortgage laws
that benefit the banks, not the homeowner.

He did everything the right way. He filed all the
paperwork necessary to prevent a foreclosure,
but it still happened anyway. Even with clear
evidence that this shouldn't have happened, a
McHenry County Chancery Judge ruled in favor of
the mortgage company.

Click the button to see the entire court docket and you
will be astonished! But, also please scroll down to
the next panel. This is where you can do something to
help Bill during this time.


Bill needs help
packing boxes at
his home & then
unpacking them
at his next place.
Please volunteer.



Bill brought up his son and daughter as a single parent
and ran his business from the home he is losing. After 30 years, Christmas just won't be the same this year without it...
