In November, AHFA met with Brent Parker, a Navy veteran and resident of Cottage Hill Place in Mobile. The newly constructed, 80-unit affordable housing development was financed in part by $912,116 in Housing Credits administered by AHFA.
Mobile native Parker said, "After I received honorable discharge, I moved back home to pursue a degree in computer network administration. I enjoy cooking, designing, and motivating the youth. I am the caretaker for two of my nephews. I strive everyday to make sure that they are equipped and ready to be young adults in this world."
Living in Cottage Hill enables Parker to care for his nephews while he deals with some health issues and works to reenter the job market. He said, "The community is a nice, clean, and friendly environment. The staff is phenomenal. Maintenance is always prepared to render services in a timely manner. Also, the community office manager is respectful and willing to assist in any situation surrounding the Cottage Hill Place community. Overall, Cottage Hill Place is a great and inviting place to live!"
