GARNER, North Carolina (WTVD) — Wake County Board of Commissioners Chairman Sig Hutchinson and other local leaders are asking the community to help residents on the verge of being homeless.
“These folks have done nothing wrong,” said Chairman Hutchinson. “They are good, rent-paying citizens but because of the large number of citizens that are basically looking for housing and affordable housing at one time this has become extremely difficult.”

Residents living in 136 units at Forest Hills Apartments in Garner must move out by June 15th.
People living in 40 units still have to find housing.
Selena Richardson is one of them. She’s trying to find a place that will accept a Section 8 voucher so she, her daughter who has MS, and her daughter’s baby boy can move in.
“It’s just stressful,” Richardson said. “It’s affecting my sleep. It’s affecting, looking at her and knowing what she’s going through with her illness and looking at the baby and saying like what we gonna do?”
