After a year of being without a home, we were happy to help Johnnie with her security deposit today so she could get into an apartment of her own. It took her about 3 months to find something that fit the budget that we built with her, but she did it! Her story:
Hi my name is Johnnie and I am 34 years old. I became homeless due to a split in a volatile relationship. I was living with my ex-boyfriend and unfortunately he put me out of the apartment we shared. I was not on thelease so there was nothing I could do. That was a year ago. Since then, I have been staying in hotels around the Orange County area as well as couch surfing at friends places when they let me. I also worked to repair my credit over that time. Today I found an apartment that meets the income/budget requirements.
Johnnie – all of us at OTS congratulate you and wish you the best!
Johnnie is the 114th person we’ve helped this year and the 291st person we’ve helped since we started in 2014.
