“But I will never forget that moment sitting there on the desk with the agent and she showed me my rent portion. It was less than $200 and it was just the weight lifted off my shoulders that I could finally focus on my career on just becoming more stable, going back to school. So Section 8 was my saving grace.”
“We really are trying to change mindset by showing the community, look what we can do. We can actually level up your community by bringing in Section 8 or an affordable property versus level down.”
