WorkLife Case Study: Helping an Employee Find Affordable Housing
From the case files of WorkLife Navigator MariSol Little
Our employee client and her son were able to save a lot of money by living with family friends, but their living situation had become tense and it was apparent that better housing was a high priority.
She reached out to Navigator MariSol Little to assist in her search for housing; together they worked on a budget and calculated a range of $800-1100. MariSol sprang into action, compiling a list of affordable housing options in the area the client desired and then paring the list by placing calls to inquire about cost and vacancy. When this search didn’t yield anything affordable or available, MariSol built a second list based on leads she received from leasing offices.
The second search yielded a lead, which MariSol passed on to the client so she could contact the leasing office and put down a deposit. The client and her son moved into their new apartment a few months after her initial contact with MariSol.
