It's especially wonderful to go and sit on my own front porch or walk through the grass.  It's even fun hanging clothes on the line!"  Alice Lehner

O wning her own home had been  Alice Lehner's dream for years.  Through her perseverance and participation in the Section 8 Homeownership Program, Alice was able to purchase a home. For the first time, Section 8 recipients now may use their voucher for mortgage payments.  Alice also participated in the Family Self-Sufficiency Program and was a past Housing Authority Scholarship recipient .
