One disaster away from homelessness

Nannette Reid, is in her 70s. And like so many on a fixed income, she is losing ground fast. 

Every month she receives the same check and it seems like every month the cost of living rises. Her income is just enough to cover expenses. She has no money beyond that. No safety net. Meanwhile the trailer she lives in is falling apart around her.

Her situation began 24 years ago when in 1998 she used her Social Security settlement to buy a mobile home in the Spruce Haven Mobile park. The home even came with a travel trailer that she lives in today. Reid planned to live there the rest of her life.
