The City of Austin is growing at such exponential rates that affordable housing has become a scarcity. Residents on a fixed income are finding it more difficult every day to find decent spaces to live that will accept social security, disability or subsidized housing. The housing that is offered can be unsuitable for living or just barely livable. This not only makes it difficult for people to live in but also challenges the integrity and dignity for those that can only afford to live in homes that are below standard.

Thankfully, there are organizations that have set out to combat this issue by offering affordable homes to marginalized communities. To ensure that residents receive housing that feels like a home, restoring dignity and integrity, Austin 1st Platoon has set a mission to help Mary Lee Foundation with beautification, landscaping and minor repairs in their communities.
