Champaign County Housing Authority Joann Dorsey Homes protest

Public housing residents have hard time finding new places to live

By Pam G. Dempsey, and Sean Powers, Illinois Public Media/ CHAMPAIGN ---  About a dozen residents from Joann Dorsey Homes and Dunbar Court protested outside of the Champaign County Housing Authority Wednesday to bring to light the troubles they have had finding a new place to live. (Read their letter here)

Their protest had the intended effect - a meeting with housing authority officials within the next week or so and increased help to find a place to live.
