I think West Sanford is a good place to live. There are very resources for the homeless. But they offer help in other areas. The housing is affordable. Most of the good paying jobs are in factories, but they offer a lot of restaurant type jobs.

The atmosphere is wonderful, very Friendly. When you go into a store or really anywhere everyone is polite and will say hello. We have great stores to shop in, wonderful farms to get fresh fruits and vegetables, wonderful parks for kids to play and parents to walk and enjoy outside. Overall it's just a great place to be.
The job outlook in Sanford, NC, or Lee County is slightly below or right at average for our area, The newspaper offers 4-9 jobs in the classified section daily, with about half being for higher skilled/paying opportunities. Many of my friends either work as sales associates in insurance, building supplies, or public service/city-county workers.
