A program which aims to help those living in their cars and campers on the street sees yet another success story.
According to a representative from People Assisting the Homeless, Councilmember Bill Rosendahl’s Roadmap to Housing intiative is helping anotherVenitian move-in to a new apartment.
“His name is Raymond and he is 78 years old,” says Tomasz Babiszkiewicz in an email to the CD11 newsroom. “Through our assistance he will be moving into a one bedroom apartment inVenice after 15 years of living in his vehicle.”
Babiszkiewicz tells us “Ray” was a freelance graphic artist earlier in his career and still has many sketches and paintings in his R.V. to this day.
“He is so excited about the possibility of moving into his own apartment,” says Babiszkiewicz. “He even sketched an outline of the design of his apartment.”
PATH tells us that Ray participated in every survey/count that took place in Venice and his apartment passed inspection on Tuesday, August 30th. Ray will move in sometime next week.
Ray is the third Roadmap to Housing success story in recent weeks. Read about the Alfred Adkins’ story here.
