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. This occasional series produced by Lakes Region Community Developers, Lakes Region Community Services, and Laconia Housing features stories of people who live in affordable housing in the Lakes Region to demonstrate the diversity of people who thrive in affordable housing and how it enriches our communities.
Victoria and her partner Joe moved to Ashland, NH from Rhode Island in 2018 to be closer to their daughter and granddaughter.
When they first moved, they lived in an apartment on Main Street and loved the location. What they didn’t love, though, was the rent. They were also located on the second floor, which was not ideal for the aging couple. When COVID hit, although they always paid their rent on time, they weren’t feeling supported by their landlord.
So they got their name on the list for Lakes Region Community Developers’ (LRCD) Ames Brook apartments in Ashland, and were thrilled when they got the call that an apartment had become available.

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.
