Housing costs

I was just reading an article with the headline "Housing Costs Lifting Rentals Out of Reach." It talks about how if you make minimum wage, chances are you can't afford a place to live. Or you're chosing between food and rent. People are having to double up, sharing either rooms or families sharing apartments meant for a single family. Heh, it fits right in with some of the problems hitting several people I know, right now. Staying afloat is sometimes not easy, nor is keeping a roof over one's head.

I am eternally grateful for everything I have, and only wish I had the means to do more to help, when I look at the circumstances besetting some folks I know.
