Most parents want their children’s lives to be better than their own. What does it take to give them that opportunity? In Ashley Jackson’s story, it started with quality affordable housing.
Ashley, a single mother of four, moved into Columbia Residential’s Cityside Mechanicsville recently. The single-family home development has given Ashley’s family a stable living environment and recently, reliable transportation.
Through a resident-wide essay competition, Ashley was awarded an SUV, given by Columbia, Variety The Children’s Charity and 1-800 Charity Cars. She’s using the car for her kids’ school and activity transportation and continuing her education.
