ROOSEVELT, New York (CNN) - When Lisa Brown moved into her rental house on Long Island last summer with her three daughters, she says, it felt like a new beginning.
After living in apartments, the spacious house got her attention immediately. "It was bigger than what I had lived in," she says. Brown was also won over by the neighborhood with its tidy homes and good school district. "I wanted to come here, and I wanted to see my kids graduate from this school district."
But they hardly had a chance. Instead, fighting back tears, she says, "I have to get out."
