Our Stories - Mrs. Lei

After my husband passed away, I had immense financial difficulty, evicted by no fault of my own, and had nowhere to go. I found Chinatown CDC and the housing counselors helped me apply for housing and educated me on tenant rights. Since then, my housing situation has been stabilized.

Through Chinatown CDC, I have become empowered to take control of my life. I am more independent and engaged with community issues. The housing counselors are always willing to help, even with issues beyond housing. They told me about Lifeline low-income telephone services and after applying I received a free portable specialized phone! When the staff support and encourage me, I feel hopeful and happier.
