Another heart breaking story today at ISH.
I’m sharing because people need to be aware of what’s happening and what’s coming as the affordable housing crisis gets worse.
I sat with a 70 year old cancer survivor with her 12 year old grand daughter today discussing their discouraging options for housing. Their landlord sold their rental property that she’s rented for 550 a month for the last 12 years, last month due to the real estate market being at an all time high Many landlords are selling to cash out which continues to elevate the demand for affordable rental properties.
Housing under $1000 a month - is impossible to find almost non existent. $600 rentals now are $1100.
In our property management company when we post a vacancy we get 30 inquiries immediately.
Demand is high supply is Low. This is a PROBLEM! That needs a solution!
They’ve been living in a hotel with her dad. It’s heart breaking. I shared the resources that I know of which are Chickasaw housing vouchers, Grace center, and community cares all programs we’ve accepted through our property management.
and said a prayer……
Stories like this are getting more and more common. We are seeing it daily where it used to be monthly….
People on fixed income can not afford to live.
I’ve seen this problem grow rapidly over the last 3 years.
This is the reason I’ve started the non profit Agape Ardmore. I hope to use agape to fund affordable housing programs and assistance for Our local residents.
When people walk into my office I want to be able to help them every single time.
Homeless prevention will be cruscial over the next couple of years. Please pay attention and if your able to help there are many many many people who could use a hand up.
Excited to close on the 1001 Hailey. This church needs a lot of love and thats exactly what its going to get! Stay tuned for Agapes progress on the old church. Our plan for the church is to renovate it and bring it back to life. Then the building will be used to give Agape love back to our community!
