Third Home is in the Beginning Stage

So two houses have been completed and are completely occupied, and we have just drawn up plans for one more house ( the plans had to be redesigned to fit on a different size lot) with the hopes of being able to build 5 more next year (we could build 40 of these a year and it would not be enough). The units rent for 30% of the client's income which with individuals that are disabled and seniors in most cases that is very little and includes utilities. For example the average person that is very low income and is disabled does not make more than $771 per month, the average rents in our area and in most ofthe country starts at $1000 for a 1 bedroom apartment. Given those two figures what do you think happens to most of these individuals? They become homeless, and the avaerage life span of a person living on the streets, especially disabled and or a senior is six months or less.

This housing is not just necessary but it is an emergency, just looking at the number of individuals that are disabled in and the rising costs of rents would make you understand the urgency. We appreciate anything you can do to help us with this cause, for most clients it can be the difference between life and death. Thank you for your support.
