Ms. ltzel B. is a service veteran who became homeless after receiving a 90-day notice from her landlord who wanted to sell the apartment complex. She was not able to secure a new home in time and ended
up on the streets for one year. Through a collaborative effort between Veterans Affairs Supportive Services for Veteran Families fSSFV) and the Housing Authority of the County of Los Angeles’ (HAC0LA) Homeless Incentive Program (HIP), Ms. ltzel received a housing voucher about a month after connecting with HACoLA. She was determined to find a place; however, she called landlord after landlord, who all said “No”. Finally, she found a landlord who was willing to tent to her and moved into a one-bedroom apartment where she now feels safe and secure. Ms. ltzel wants to tell other people in this situation, “Be persistent. It’s only the squeaky wheel that gets the grease.”
