Lorena Magee, Resident of Bronaugh Apartments

Lorena MageeLorena says: “I feel like this is my home, and I can stay here for a long time.”

Everyone in our community deserves a safe place to call home. Lorena, 48, fled from an abusive relationship in the late ‘90s. She found Bronaugh Apartments in her time of need and has lived there for 10 years. After experiencing trauma from past abuse, addiction and mental illness, Lorena says living with her partner and pets at the Bronaugh brings her comfort. She likes the bustling downtown location. “Even though it’s a big city, it’s like a small town. People will stop and talk to you,” says Lorena. If she didn’t live at the Bronaugh, Lorena says she’d be on the street or in a group home. Here, she is part of a community.
