Channa McGee has been out on her own since the age of 17. “I’ve always lived in a low-income property area. At 17, I lived in apartments in a drug area…have had all slum lords, except one,” she says. Today, Channa lives in a rental house with her three children: Tamarshae (18), Shana (15), and Jashunnie (7). “Every week something is breaking over and over again. They’re fixing it on their own time,” states Channa. The basement has flooded several times and there have been repeated plumbing issues. On top of that, Channa is paying almost half her monthly income towards rent and utilities.
