Before we moved into our new [Habitat] home, our family was always under extreme stress. The cost of renting on the South Shore is extreme to say the least. Add to that the shortage of housing. We have moved five times in five years. Our children have had to change schools several times. Our rent was always so high; we always had trouble making ends meet. The basic need of housing was our biggest burden, and the weight of this stress was taking its toll on the our whole family.
