Brittney Horton

The Project

Many veterans leave the military with physical and mental issues. Due to these issues many veterans are not able to maintain a steady income and become homeless. Brittney’s project assisted veterans in obtaining financial stability through various legal areas.

The Project

Reach tenants in HUD assisted project based Section 8 building, with contracts expiring in two years. Help tenants organize, educate them on their rights, and capacity build to preserve their homes.

This project addresses all of the things that come along with housing preservation, such as conditions and forging strong relationships between the tenants and the community around them. When relationships are built, more people come together to fight when the tenants are facing displacement or poor conditions. It’s all about putting a working machine in place to always operate in favor of the underprivileged.

 

The Project
