LANSING (WILX)-- Many former Life O' Riley residents are finding new homes. 92% have moved out of hotels and into affordable housing according to Dr. Joan Jackson Johnson, director for Lansing's Human Relations and Community Services Department.
But for the remaining 8%, their hotel rooms won't be paid for much longer.
"Sometimes we just have to draw the line," said Jackson Johnson.
One of the 8%, Tim Walker, has been living in a hotel with his family and have been told to move out by Monday morning. Walker has been offered affordable housing according to Jackson Johnson, but Walker says he can't afford the $690 down deposit.
Without the money, Walker and his family are struggling to find a place to stay. News Ten's Alyssa Fenske will have the full story tonight at six.
