After three years on a waitlist, Ha and her daughter Winnie were finally approved for affordable safe housing. They had no way to pay double rent and a security deposit without the support of HIF. Their previous home was on a high traffic busy street. Winnies’ health and behavioral needs changed due to escalating behaviors of bolting and being unaware of safety concerns. This caused a lot of safety stress for Ha a single mom caring for a child with a developmental disability. Ha and Winnie are now in a more affordable and safe community.
