What Affordable Housing Means to Vanessa Torres

Affordable housing is a big issue but also can be a gift when given to people who need it, like Vanessa Torres. Vanessa Torres is a farm worker who has lived at one of our affordable housing properties, Villa Del Sol Apartments in Calexico, California, for the past three years. She has one son who is thirteen and is a single mother. Vanessa has been working in the fields in the Imperial Valley and in Arizona for ten years. When she first started working in the fields, she lived in Mexicali, Mexico. It was difficult for her to cross the border every day to go to work. Vanessa was scared of being robbed or being detained, even though she has a Permanent Resident card from the United States. Va
