BCM Georgia In Action
Tina and her son had been living out of hotels and her vehicle since being evicted because her work hours had been cut, and she fell behind on rent. After approving Tina for our Foundation 3™ supportive housing program BCM Georgia’s Director of Housing helped secure a home for Tina and her son despite her rental history. Foundation 3™ provides up to 18 months of professionally case managed housing, education, and employment services.
Tina’s crisis level heightened when she totaled her vehicle in an accident and ran out of money to pay for a hotel room. She had no choice but to check out of the hotel with nowhere to go for shelter that night with her son.
BCM alerted the property manager of Tina’s situation, and based on our reputation, they allowed Tina to move in the same day despite the pending background check and credit screening and without the security deposit and pro-rated rent. They trusted BCM Georgia after speaking with our Director of Housing about Foundation 3™ and made their decision based on this.
This story is a testament to BCM Georgia’s reputation, as this property manager made their decision based on the trust of our agency.
