Homeowner #993 – Edgar and Yolanda began their life together in a small apartment and progressed to purchasing a small trailer home. As the kids grew it became apparent that this was not sufficient space in which to raise a family. They went back to renting, but were paying as much as they would for a house payment.
This led them to apply for Section 8 housing. Although that was a financial blessing, the environment was not good for their family: drugs, parking lot brawls and even occasional shootouts. Their new home holds the promise of providing a better future for their family.
