Kirsten Cummings describes living in her former BRIDGE apartment in Southern California as "the greatest opportunity." While working full-time and attending Cal State San Marcos, Kirsten and her husband, Chris, spent two years on BRIDGE's waiting list before an affordable two-bedroom apartment became available at Villa Loma Apartments. "Our main goal was to finish our education and save for a house, but there was nothing in the area with rent even close to what BRIDGE offered at Villa Loma," recalls Kirsten. After living in Villa Loma for two and a half years, the Cummings saved enough for a down payment on their first home. Last June, Kirsten, Chris and their new daughter Morgan moved in. "We're thrilled!" exclaims Kirsten. "Living in Villa Loma gave us this opportunity. There is just no other way we could have made it happen."
