“When I was looking for housing, people would turn me down just because I was Black. I would come with first and last month’s rent and be the first person there, yet I would be instantly denied. What did I do to make someone treat me like that when all I was trying to do was survive?”

—Reno, a former resident of Eva’s

“Being a part of the program gave me a lot of skills to find a job, have a better resume and cover letter, do well in interviews and dress professionally. I also learned soft skills like conflict resolution and how to adapt to the work environment.”
