TUCSON – Pima County officials say there is an eviction problem.
They say there are many factors, but they say wages are too low and there is not enough affordable housing in Pima County.
“A young woman has two children,” said Bonnie Bazata, Ending Poverty Now Program Manager. “She was in a domestic violence situation, so she had to move to a shelter for her own safety. She has been in a shelter, so through that process, she lost her apartment and lost a lot of things in her apartment.”
Bazata says she has heard many stories like this.
