I was introduced to Ashville, Ohio by the Local Metropolitan Housing Authority.

I had applied for a HUD- Housing Voucher Program and was on a waiting list for 3 consecutive years. I was very thankful at the time to be admitted in the program. I had good credit and at the time was working and living in a apartment community that did not offer housing assistance.

Unfortunately I did lose my job and was planning on returning to college. Due to these incidents it was difficult for me to keep paying rent. In the early spring of 2015 I got a phone call from the Local Housing Authority, the representative stated my name came up on the waiting list and I am eligible for the Housing Voucher.

The Housing Authority stated that they had a vacancy in Ashville. So I looked at the apartment and decided to move in .



Many people do not know much about the community or how to drive to the community. It has american flags in the Village and has a little rustic charm.

I like the small town feel because everything is conveniently close together but there is not much diversity in the town nor is there much acceptance for other cultures or identities besides straight white people. Overall though, there is not much crime or violence and it is a relatively calm, quiet place to live.
Overall Ashville is a very nice place with a close-knit community. Holidays are celebrated within the community which makes it feel straight out of a Hallmark movie. Although in town Ashville could use some help. There are run down small businesses that never succeed and drug addicts in the cheap run-down apartments that used to be part of a church.
