The Story of Shade Benton
Ms. Benton and her family stayed at Valley Place Family Apartments for two years. Ms. Benton remained employed during her entire stay and paid off her debt to her previous landlord. She and her family moved to permanent housing in May 2015. Ms. Benton was eligible to receive first month and security deposit assistance from the Coalition. She is grateful to the Coalition and very happy with all her accomplishments.
