"It affects me tremendously. I don’t have the income that makes living in Boston possible." — Louis, Retired, Hyde Park

"It makes living very hard. It’s hard to make ends meet while I’m furthering my education." — Lakeisha H., Nursing Student, Quincy
"It’s got me on the borderline of being homeless. If I miss one payment, I’m on the street in one of the richest countries in the world. I’m just existing here." — Bruce, Painter, Mattapan
