Sandra’s Story

After living in her condo for 12 years, Sandra and her two sons were unexpectedly forced to move when her landlord decided to sell the condo. She had 60 days in which to find new housing, but as Sandra lives with cerebral palsy she was not prepared to move in such a short time frame. She knew she needed help and was connected with CRC by the Carlsbad Housing Navigator. CRC provided Sandra’s family with a hotel for 33 days, paid the deposit and first month’s rent on her new apartment and paid past due utilities. Sandra says “If I did not have help I would have been homeless. I have never gone through anything like this before.” Now Sandra, her two sons and their dog are comfortably living in their new apartment.
