Providing Quality Housing Opportunities to Deserving Families with Briar Bearss, USMA ‘22

Apr 8, 2024 | USMA

“We’re really taking care of the houses and we’re really taking care of the families that are living in these houses. We’re providing a service just as much as we are being landlords because these families can take their government vouchers wherever they go. We have to be good stewards of the government funding or else it is going to naturally leave.” -Briar Bearss, USMA ‘22
