My mom told me about this program and about this little house being for rent. Before LCHT we were bouncing from house to house, living with family members, it wasn’t working for us. It was a mess, we didn’t have any privacy at all. We’ve been trying to live on our own for a while now and this is the first time we’ve been able to do it. Not having a rental history made finding a place difficult but LCHT was willing to work with us. Because we didn’t have any rental history we are on a 12-month probationary period….

“It was affordable housing, affordable childcare, and built-in community all at once, it was awesome”! We got married in College. I graduated first and got a teaching job while Adam was still in school. We’d been married 3 years and had a little baby and we were living on a teacher’s salary. Some of our friends who were in a similar situation had bought a house through the Lawrence Community Housing Trust.  That got us thinking that home ownership might not be as far off as we thought it was. We began looking at our budget and realized home ownership…

It was about seven years ago that my family and I were lucky enough to move into our house right after it was built by LCHT. It was a brand new! The house is a three bedroom, two bathrooms and it’s right across the street from a park. The whole place is energy efficient and handicap accessible. My husband and I have a daughter and a son and we didn’t really think the accessibility thing was something that we would utilize but last year, my husband ended up needing a walker and my daughter broke her foot and the accessibility…

My story is that I have four kids and like all families we’ve gone through some hard times. I don’t really want to go into details but it hasn’t always been easy for us. Luckily for me, the time when I needed help there was someone there. TTH provided an opportunity and a blessing for my family. This house that we are in was built with love and care so when my family got this house we had no choice but to feel that, and we feel it. Me being a single mom, I can speak to the single mothers…

I went from college to “adulting” in a very short period of time. I graduated from Washburn in 2015 and got my job here in Lawrence literally 2 days later. It was a weird transition time and I ended up moving into a rental complex with lots of college students, it wasn’t great, it was parties, loud music and people coming in and out at all hours.  I’m a professional now. I work an 8-5 and have to be up at 7am every day and that living situation wasn’t working for me. A co-worker of mine had gotten a house through…

I was a single mom when the kids were little, with no child support, and the inability to own my own home. I worked one full time job and three part time jobs just to make things work.  After Moving to Lawrence, I heard about Tenants to Homeowners. At first I didn’t qualify for the program because of a recent bankruptcy but the wonderful staff gave me the information and tools needed to get my finances in order. After a period of working towards qualifying, I was eventually able to get my very own condo — a small lovely condo…
