Contact Carolyn directly.
For those of you know who don't know me, my name is Carolyn and I am serving as the AmeriCorps*VISTA member working with the Refugee and Immigrant Support Services of Emmaus (RISSE) in Albany, NY. I have been working with RISSE since August and am hoping to continue my service for a second year.
My current apartment lease ends at the end of May, and I need to find a new place to live. However, living on an AmeriCorps salary of roughly $800/month makes affording an apartment in Albany extremely difficult. Over the past few months I have had multiple housing options lined up for this summer and next semester, but again and again they have fallen through. I have spent the last month doing all I can to find a place to stay at least for the summer, but I am running out of options. I am a percussionist and practice my drum set occasionally and vibraphone almost daily. I know I can be a noisy person to live with, but I am hoping to further my musical career in the future so practicing is an important part of my daily life. I am otherwise fairly quiet and responsible.
If you or someone you know can help me find a place to live, please email me back at your earliest convenience. I greatly appreciate your help with this. Unfortunately, I may not be able to continue my VISTA service if I cannot find affordable housing. Thank you in advance for your help.
