  • Chris B.

    For almost 11 years I paid my rent on time. I finally had found a job 3 years ago that I thought would pay enough for me to finally save up and buy a home. All it took was a series of setbacks to push me to where I am at now. Last summer during the worse of the pandemic, I got a serious illness that cost me mobility in one of my arms. Because it flares up so often, and interferes with my daily life, I was eventually forced out of that job.
