The Hasan (HASS-en) family, who owns the Community Grocery Store on Elm Avenue is looking into purchasing the building.
Unfortunately, the family isn't sure who to buy it from-- and that issue will have to be resolved before any other action can be taken.
According to the city, the Mennonite Board of Missions still owns the building.
But the church maintains it sold Justice House five years ago.
Nidal Hasan says his family is not that wealthy, but his relatives might be able to afford the low- income apartment building with a loan.
Meanwhile, Roanoke Area Ministries and the Mennonites are urging Justice House tenants to move out immediately.
RAM says it'll provide emergency financial assistance to anyone who wants to leave.
