Now, 10 years later, Teri’s daughters have grown. Her eldest daughter recently got married and her twin girls are attending college. Teri continues her career as a business-owner and hairstylist, but she feels disheartened knowing how expensive the housing market has become.
“I can’t believe that the average rent for a one-bedroom apartment is getting close to $2,000,” she said. “My heart hurts for my girls who are working hard to stay in this community, but trying to make enough money for that kind of rent while attending college as a full-time student is a challenge.”
