I understand that this site says affordable housing. But affordable to who? There are a lot of us citizens that make under 25,000 a year. The income you're asking for only 3% of people make that much. So where does that leave us, who are stuck in a shelter, with an income below poverty level? Even the immigrants are getting apartments and assistance faster than us! We were born and raised here! But yet, we're getting treated like we're the immigrants!
