Linc communities change lives.
The Gallegos family found stability and new opportunities at Mosaic Gardens in Pomona, a supportive housing community opened by Linc in 2017.
Their fortunes turned for the better in December 2017, when Ramon happened to drive by Mosaic Gardens at Pomona and saw its sign advertising affordable housing. He sent a postcard requesting an application, filled it out, and waited. Soon an affordable three-bedroom home became available — changing the trajectory of their lives.
"I was almost in tears," Ramon says of the moment they learned they had been approved to move into Mosaic Gardens at Pomona. "We've got our own spot, after all that struggling."
Ramon was able to get his commercial driver's license, which led to a better job as a sanitation truck driver, lifting the worry over how he would pay for food and rent. The children are doing much better in school, thanks to their new housing stability and Linc's after-school program.
