The House Building is Underway!

Every day individuals on a limited income are faced with increased rents and having to make a decision between food and having a place to live. The Single Room Occupancy Homes that we are currently building for Individuals with disabilities, seniors and Veterans have a bedroom, bathroom and kitchenette all combined into one unit with a shared common area. The average rent for  Individuals with disabilities, seniors and Veterans is between $350-$500 depending on income and that includes all utilities. This can make the difference on whether or not they live on the streets or are housed.

The avaerage person on Social Security disability makes between $600- $1,300 on avaerage and with rents starting at $1000 in most cities (and in our area) for a 1 or 2 bedroom apartment you can see where that would cause these individuals to become homeless. As a HUD approved Housing Counseling Agency we see individuals daily that are faced with this challenge so we decided that we had to do something to change the dianamic by creating affordable rental housing that would allow people that are considered very low and low income to have a safe affordable place to live.

The money donated to this cause will help to build these units and other affordable housing units, changing lives one at a time. THank you for your help and consideration.
