Meet Sherry

Sherry moved from Atlanta to Seattle to be closer to her children and grandchildren. While getting settled, she found an affordable short-term rental near Redmond, Washington. Then the pandemic hit and in the blink of an eye, Sherry lost her job. With little savings, Sherry could no longer afford her short-term rental. She began couch surfing, staying with family and friends. Fearful of becoming a burden, she knew this could not be a long-term option for her. She packed everything she owned inside her car and would drive to a parking lot each night. 


In the morning, she wake up at sunrise, exit the lot, and spend the day looking for housing. After months of trying, her persistence finally paid off when Sherry was referred to Gardner House in Seattle’s Columbia City neighborhood.


“Walking through my apartment the first time, it felt like a mansion to me,” said Sherry. 


“On Sundays, my grandkids visit. With a full kitchen, I’ve been teaching them to cook and bake. They love my chocolate chip cookies!”
