Family Lives in Campgrounds as They Search for Housing

Share this article

A family from Florida that moved to the Mid-South is currently experiencing the Memphis Housing Crisis.

Today, the couple and their two children live in a tent as they search for affordable accommodations.

Memphis has seen a significant increase in rental costs and purchases since Covid-19 hit.

The Martinez family has been living in a Memphis campground for the past five weeks as they look for a home.

Mrs. Martinez said that the campsite does have a few comforts of home, such as water, electrical, a laundry area, showers, and bathrooms.

Chris Martinez, the father, took his family from Florida on the presumption that he landed a job in Memphis and had acquired a residence.

But when they arrived, they discovered that the apartment had no vacancy.

The family is currently looking for affordable, safe dwellings but is unsuccessful in their search. They said properties are either too costly, have no vacancies, or have stringent qualifying guidelines.

What was supposed to be a short stay at the campground has turned into five weeks with no end in sight.

But the Martinez family remains hopeful they will find a home. They just pray it happens before winter arrives.
