In 2020, 53.4% of people exiting villages moved into long term housing. This includes, 47.4% of people who moved into permanent housing and 6% of people who moved into transitional housing, a pathway to permanent housing that typically includes services and Section 8 support.
“So living in a tent was you know, it gets cold. I always had to have candles or a stove and then you had to buy propane and you know tents burn up real easy. There’s no lock on the doors, you know, there’s no safety. You’re just out in the elements. It’s devastating. Now I have security. I have a lock on my door. I can shut out the world and go have my private time or I can be friendly and come out and be with people. I fixed it up like my own little house. My stuff doesn’t get stolen. I’m proud of my little house”– Tina
“I was living in my car at the beginning of April this year… I had been at True Hope for 29 days when I was told that they had found me an apartment. I was thinking ‘I’ve heard this before’ but I soon received a phone call from Ms. Ashley at LIHI. After I got the call the process was so quick. I now live at Denny Park Apartments and it’s been a blessing to be living there.”– Tom
“These tiny houses saved my life and I see people bloom when they come here. We need more of these villages and more support for them. The village works way differently than being out on the street. It builds a person’s self-esteem back up so they take pride and makes them want to get a job.”– Mary
