Roy Frost has lived at Wildflower Terrace for almost two years after needing to find a home he could afford.
Making the decision to move from his Denver, Colorado apartment – where he had lived for more than a decade – to Wildflower Terrace has allowed him to live within his limited budget.
In Denver, Roy’s rent was going up $300 a month, and his only source of income was a small savings account and a monthly social security check.
He began to search online for affordable housing, but the more Roy looked, the more confusing it became. Denver had no low-cost housing available.
He isn’t sure how it happened, but while Roy was house hunting, the Good Samaritan Society’s Connection Center popped up on his screen. Roy took a chance and dialed the number. Help was waiting on the other end. The Connection Center helped Roy narrow his search and they found him an apartment at Wildflower Terrace.
It feels great. I’ll have a roof over my head and I’ll feel safe, and that’s good.” – Roy Frost, Wildflower Terrace resident
Roy's new home offers him the peace of mind to live within his limited income.
His rent includes utilities like heating and air conditioning, so he doesn't have to worry about extra living expense. He also doesn't have to do lawn work or other maintenance.
Three days a week, Roy volunteers at the local mission store sorting donated items. "I try to do that to keep active," he says. He also enjoys visiting the library and going to town activities.
Roy is not the only resident who has moved to Wildflower Terrace after housing became too expensive in a larger community.
I've talked to other people here who have come from Denver like I did, and they are so thankful for a place they can qualify for and move into. It takes a load off your mind and a lot less worry." – Roy Frost
