Anna and her two kids came to inCOMMON’s Bristol Apartments after fleeing a dangerous situation of domestic violence. The studio apartment she moved into was small, but affordable, clean, and most importantly, safe. Anna regularly expressed her gratitude for this new home that provided her and her sons sanctuary in a time when they were on the edge of homelessness and despair.
Over the years, many of us have become friends with Anna’s family. They sense something different in the way inCOMMON does “business” – we don’t just own and manage her apartment building; we live nearby and work down the street. She knows her family has immediate access to job support, health and wellness classes, adult education, and supportive friendships.
The studio-size units in the Bristol will soon be insufficient as her boys grow bigger. It’s because of families like Anna’s that inCOMMON purchased the Georgia Apartments. Once rehabbed, this family-friendly building will provide 2- and 3-bedroom units for low-income families seeking stability, safety, and a bright tomorrow.
