I am a resident of southwest Fresno, and I do not think needing affordable housing should determine where I can live. Affordable housing should be available in north and south Fresno.
In response to the July 26 article “Housing fight is looming in Fresno,” we are segregating the population based on economic need. Everyone should have equal access to job opportunities, better schools and housing. Instead of creating barriers between the communities, we should have a housing system that integrates the community.
In addition, having the housing application online can be a barrier. It would be helpful to have a paper application and resources to assist families in completing this process.
