Kent had regained his health, and was ready to leave the assisted living facility and its restrictions behind and find his own place. Through an agency referral, Kent contacted the Housing Trust. He was impressed with the mission-based approach of the organization, as well as their goals of historic preservation.

“We talked at length about the importance of being a good neighbor – I thought that was quite remarkable. The Housing Trust was a great move for me, because I’m able to live in a beautiful restored building.  The fact that I’m living in an old schoolroom from 1898, that’s right up my alley. When it comes to restoring properties, these folks do it right.”
