From our tenants, "Sola helped me..."
ESCAPE FROM AN ABUSIVE RELATIONSHIP
Esutolia left an abusive marriage and was living out of her car while she worked at a local restaurant. A few months ago, she got a HUD Section8 voucher, subsidizing 70% of her rent. “I am so, so thankful for allowing me to start a new life. I have never ever lived in anything this beautiful and will take care of it like my home.”

GET OFF THE STREETS
Francisco Avalos was homeless when he approached SoLa Rentals.
RESTART MY LIFE
After the death of his wife, James spiraled into depression and homelessness. James found SoLa through the VASH Assistance program. “People don’t realize how much a nice, safe home means…until you don’t have one.”

Mr. Jones was permanently confined to a wheelchair after an accident. SoLa purposefully makes several of its ground floor units handicapped accessible. “I make each and every day a good day.”

GIVE BACK TO MY NEIGHBORHOOD
Ashley grew up in South Central. In 2005, she was shot in a driveway shooting in the crossfire. After her recovery, she decided she wanted to help others to heal herself. Sola sponsored Ashley to get her real-estate agent's license exam. She is now a full-time leasing and property manager. Ashely says, "She's looking forward to improving herself and her neighborhood."
