LAFAYETTE – Mosing Queens Row Property says that they are continuing to work with Catholic Charities of Acadiana to help out residents who are left in limbo at their mobile home park.

KATC reached out to officials after receiving numerous complaints that the company, who are asking residents to relocate, is not assisting residents.

Dozens of households remain in limbo after a mass eviction was given in January.

A spokesperson for the Mosing Queens Row Property says that they have reached out to residents living in the mobile home park, asking them to call with any concerns. Business cards were left at each resident’s door alerting them to the help they can receive.

Tuesday after KATC’s update on the eviction, residents expressed their concerns that Queens Row was not assisting in any capacity.  Callers told KATC that only Catholic Charities had reached out to those still left behind.

Amy Jones of Mosing Queens Row Property says that no calls have gone unanswered. “Every person who has called has been given a callback or pointed in the right direction,” Jones said.

The company says they understand the frustration that current residents are going through but say that they will work with anyone who is in need of assistance.

Catholic Charities who Jones says is working with the property owners has been out this week and will continue to walk the neighborhood.

Jones says each individual case is different but Mosing Queens Row Property and Catholic Charities are helping in any capacity they can

Property owners say the park’s location played a role in the decision to evict residents. The park is near an industrial company and they say drainage issues make the park uninhabitable.
