Let Elderly Tenants know they are not on their own

You can protect vulnerable tenants

I’d like to tell you about an elderly couple on a fixed income that spoke with a LIHS HUD-certified Housing Counselor, Alisa Drinkwater. Like most of our clients who are suffering from housing insecurity they have asked that their name not be used.

In this letter of appreciation, the couple explained their situation better than I could:

“November 2022 began a horrible experience for my husband and I. We were told we had to move in 1 ½ weeks. When we couldn’t do this the owner of the house, who lived downstairs began harassing us to the point of our calling the police 4 times.

We were at our wits end, we are elderly and on social security, when we found your Organization and Alisa Drinkwater.

Alisa was a great help to us by giving us a lot of information about several services and suggestions for our situation. She was very understanding and patient. We felt we were no longer alone.

Your agency is so important to Long Island and to people like us who need help.”
