No one expects to become homeless. The truth is, homelessness can happen to anyone.*
Clara, at 87 years old, received a notice of a 62% rent increase, pricing her out of housing.
“When she got the notice, thankfully I was there. She just broke down,” said her daughter Vena. “She lived there a long time, and the thought of moving just destroyed her.”
Vena contacted the news, telling them about her mother’s situation (Watch the news coverage below).
The story went viral.
That’s when a stranger decided to launched a Go Fund Me campaign to pay for Clara’s housing.
What happened after that surprised both women.
