“You don’t have the tables to prep on. You don’t have a refrigerator. I’m buying ice every other day to put in a cooler to keep what little bit of things we can buy.”
The apartment Virginia Martin lived in.
Trying to find a more permanent place to live seems like one of the biggest struggles.
“Most of them are full. Some are way beyond my price range,” Martin said. “It was people next to us and half of Trotwood, all over, looking for places to live. They seem to get there before I do.”

Martin has heard of openings in the fall, but that’s a long way away.
“I don’t want to be in a hotel till the end of September. I don’t think my nerves can handle it.”
Another struggle is that Martin has over $10,000 in damage to her car, but fortunately, she has insurance covering both that and the motel stay.
