STONE MOUNTAIN, GA (CBS46) -

Occupy Our Homes Atlanta helped a woman win back her home in Stone Mountain.

Mildred Garrison-Obi was evicted in November 2012.

She risked arrest when she moved back in. 

But after negotiating with Bank of America, she was able to buy back her house for a dollar.

"It's been a long hard struggle but anything that's worth having is worth fighting for," said Garrison-Obi.

She and Occupy our Homes Atlanta staged a sit-in at a Bank of America which led to a truce and her being able to buy back her home.
