Denise, 53, is a mother of three and grandmother of eight. In 2020, she was unlawfully evicted and experienced homelessness for one year before reaching out to LA Family Housing, a Measure H-funded homeless services provider.
After some hesitation, Denise agreed to enroll at Taper Interim Housing, where she found stability and assistance to apply for a Housing Choice Voucher through LACDA.
Denise is grateful for the persistence of her case manager in finding her a one-bedroom apartment. She feels blessed to know that she will no longer be on the streets. “Don’t give up on believing you can be housed,” she said.
