It’s not affordable at all. I can’t live in my own neighborhood anymore. — Cornelius Sanders, Security, Dorchester
I’m in subsidized housing. But I know if there’s a cut to funding, I’d lose my apartment. — Jackie Evans, Outreach Services, South End
It doesn’t affect me because I’m a homeowner. But a lot of people say they can’t afford to live in the city. — Inez Cooks, State Worker, Roxbury
I’m single. I don’t receive any help. Little by little, the cost of living is making it difficult to stay in the city. Everything goes up but your pay. — Carmelot Beauvais, Telemarketer, Dorchester
I was forced out of Fort Hill. I’m trying to stay in Roxbury. It’s difficult with high rents. It doesn’t seem like there’s anything for middle-income people anymore. — Helen Showard, Loan Collection Supervisor, Roxbury
