My family and I are about to celebrate our second Thanksgiving as residents of Kings Terrace, a development in northwest Miami-Dade that looks expensive but is really an affordable housing community built by Pinnacle Housing Group.
This complex opened last year around this time, and our family was among the first to move in. Now there are more than 1,000 people living here. Many of our neighbors are now friends, and we have developed a sense of community.
My family used to live in a rough area where we often slept on the floor to avoid gunshots. Moving to Kings Terrace has given us a second chance at life and changed us for the better. Now we take pride in our home and begin each day with a sense of confidence.
There is no substitute for a proud and peaceful life.
