FACES OF AFFORDABLE HOUSING
Affordable housing is about everyone in our community being able to afford a home that supports good physical, financial, and emotional well-being. LRCD will feature stories of residents who live in our affordable housing throughout the year. We will share their life journeys, struggles, triumphs, and aspirations. We think you will find that their goals and dreams are not so different from your own.
Chantal Bonbon, her mother, brother and his now-wife moved to the Lakes Region from Massachusetts when Chantal was just six years old. The family settled down in a home in Meredith. Over the next 11 years, Chantal attended Inter-Lakes Elementary and High School.
Unfortunately, after finishing her sophomore year, Chantal’s life was flipped upside down when she and her family lost their home to a devastating fire in June 2011. Within a matter of minutes, everything they owned was gone. The family was forced to move from hotel to hotel until they could find a more permanent residence. Luckily, thanks to the help of the community, Chantal and her family were able to secure housing within a week and moved into an apartment at Harvey Heights, a community owned by Lakes Region Community Developers.

Our goal is for everyone in the Lakes Region to live in a home that supports good physical, mental, and financial health and is empowered to reach their full potential.
