Housing Choice Voucher information

But the road to get there was tough because opportunities for affordable housing in New Jersey are few and far between.

“I lived in about four different places in the span of about six months, including a hotel. It was difficult. I lived in a respite house, too, so I knew once I got settled in there I was very happy to just put down some roots,” said Boross.
