Our Impact

We help a demographic no one else helps: hard-working, responsible people who, if they are the average working person living in an apartment, are living paycheck-to-paycheck, have little to no savings, and are spending a lot more than 30% of their income on housing. They are probably also carrying credit card or other debt but they make too much money to qualify for program assistance.


Success Stories

There are many ways we help responsible residents, hit with a sudden financial emergency and with nowhere else to turn, to stay in their apartments.
