[NEWS] Hundreds Wait In Line For Their Chance At Affordable Housing

A line wrapping around the 1500 block of Fairmount Avenue Wednesday night illustrated the shortage of affordable housing in Philadelphia.

Hundreds of people camped out, waiting to apply for a unit in a new apartment building for the formerly homeless.

Kamisha Graham arrived at 10 a.m. Wednesday, 22 hours before Project HOME began accepting applications for the North Broad Street units.

“I never slept. I actually sat in a chair, on my crate, and I stayed up all night,” she said.
