DETROIT -- A 101-year-old Detroit woman who was evicted from her foreclosed house is expected to move back home next week.

Detroit Free Press columnist Mitch Albom and his charity S.A.Y. Detroit are helping to renovate Hollis' house. The author's charity bought the home from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to fix it up for Hollis.

Hollis was evicted Sept. 12 after her 65-year-old son failed to pay property taxes linked to a reverse mortgage and HUD foreclosed. Two days later, the department said she could return.

But that didn't happen because HUD said the home was unsanitary and unsafe.
