Real Change Vendor Lisa Sawyer has been homeless for about five years. She stayed at Tent City 3, hotels, friends’ houses and outdoors.
Lisa once spent $7,000 over the course of four months to stay at a hotel. She and her boyfriend spent three years looking for housing.
Those days are behind her now, as Lisa has moved into an apartment in the Greenwood neighborhood through a DESC rapid rehousing program.
“I am so adoring my apartment,” Sawyer said. “It is so nice and warm.”
