In 2016, HDC MidAtlantic established the Hope & Opportunity Fund to assist residents at-risk of eviction and homelessness. The fund further assists residents with emergencies or one-time needs.
Residents like Shari. Shari lives at Skyline View Apartments in Reading, Pa. Recently, she was at risk of eviction after her mother — who was also her roommate — decided to move to New York.
Shari is in her mid-fifties. She lives daily with disabilities as a result of a stroke she suffered. And, she has very limited income.
She did not want to leave the new life she had created at Skyline View, but could not afford the apartment on her own. With no other options for housing assistance, she turned to HDC MidAtlantic’s Hope & Opportunity Fund for support.
HDC MidAtlantic worked with Shari to relocate her into an available efficiency at Skyline View where she has been able to stay current on her rent. “I love it and it’s mine,” Shari said. “I have friends here. I have a community here.”
But, not every renter has access to a resource like the Hope & Opportunity Fund. With nowhere else to turn, thousands of families across the country lose their homes to the eviction process each year.
