Housing Choice Voucher
From the San Diego Union-Tribune:
A former motel that once had been seen as a blight in the neighborhood will be a new permanent home for 82 homeless San Diegans, including Lister Lane.
“This is like a dream,” said Lane, 61, in his first visit to Benson’s Place in the Otay Mesa/Nestor neighbor in South Bay on Wednesday. “It felt like home.”
A couple years ago, I happened to be in the company of a single mother of two young daughters on the day she found out her long wait for a federal housing voucher had come to an end.
