From the San Bernardino Sun:
When Ana Santana and her children moved into their Loma Linda apartment nearly four years ago, it meant more than having a new place to live.
It was a new start.
From Next City:
Over the next 25 years, San Antonio is expecting to welcome a million new residents, an influx of people that would expand its population by about two-thirds. And while rent in the city is still relatively cheap, more than 40 percent of renters are cost burdened, paying more than 30 percent of their income for housing. In anticipation of the influx and a worsening market for renters, the San Antonio Housing Authority is planning to spend close to half a billion dollars on new mixed-income projects in the coming years.
From ABC KSAT 12:
Bridging the gap between foster care and a life of independence is one of the big goals for local nonprofit the THRU Project.
Originally established to provide mentors for youth who age out of state care, the group recently expanded its mission to provide housing for a vulnerable young population.
We first told you about the Next Step housing program last year. Now it's expanding, thanks to a new partnership with the San Antonio Housing Authority.
From Sacramento Promise Zone's press release:
