Sometimes change can be scary, especially when you’ve been doing the same thing for ten years. Such was the case for Felipe Hernandez. Having lived for ten years in a nursing facility after suffering a stroke he had doubts about moving out on his own.

“I was used to living there”, says Felipe. “I was scared of being alone.”

That was five years ago. Now, with the help of Coastal Bend Center for Independent Living (CBCIL), Felipe has a Project Access Voucher and lives in a Housing Tax Credit property, The Sea Breeze Senior Apartments in Corpus Christi.

“CBCIL helped me with everything. They paid for everything, my deposit, my furniture. I like my apartment. I like it here. In the nursing facility I slept four or five hours. Here I sleep from 10:30 till 7:00 when my provider gets here.”
