Sometimes life can be abrupt and demanding, testing our resolve. My pursuit for higher education placed me in an awkward and desperate situation. Misfortune, through the misplacement of an email, surrendered our lease at CSUMB. We were told that we no longer qualified to live on campus, but we were fortunate enough to have extended our stay for one additional month. I was faced with the dilemma of relocation and financial burden. The Housing Resource Center, with their unbelievable staff was able to assist me in all aspects of locating a suitable replacement for a home. I am extremely indebted and appreciative for all of the support that this organization was able to offer me and my family. I can only hope to return the favor one day. I truly believe that my family would have had to have couched surfed for weeks until we could have found a home on our own.
