Fredia Davis Rapid Rehousing Program
People Incorporated’s Homeless Prevention and Rapid Re-Housing program has been a life-saver for many who were teetering on the brink of homelessness
in 2016. Fredia Davis and her family were assisted through this program after a fire rendered their home unlivable. The family received help to quickly locate adequate housing, as well as assistance with security deposits and initial rental payments.
Donald and Vickie Tignor Consumer Loan
Due to poor credit, Donald and Vickie Tignor were unable to qualify for a loan that would allow them to move their trailer out of a crowded trailer park and onto their own land. Because their granddaughter attended Benham’s Head Start (operated by People Incorporated), the Tignors were referred to the Consumer Loan Program. The couple received financial counseling through the program and was eventually awarded a Consumer Loan for purchasing two acres of land in Washington County, Virginia. They recently moved their trailer to the new location and are enjoying life.
Lauren Allison and William Sexton
Homeless Prevention Program
Lauren Allison and William Sexton in Meadowview, Virginia, were in need of housing assistance due to an eviction notice. Through People Incorporated’s Homeless Prevention Program, they qualified for assistance with their security deposit and first month’s rent. “Without this program, my family and I would not be able to have a home,” Lauren declared.
