What Our Residents are saying.

What can I say…I have lived here for many years and during that time I have fondly called this place my home. There have been many changes all for the better and for the most part I’ve always good neighbors. I have found this property to be ideal for me and raising my son. The management staff have always been open and willing to listen always with an open door policy.

The community [has] been my home for many years. I have always felt safe and have never wanted to live anywhere else since I’ve been here. I raised my son here. He was in Catholic School when I moved into the area. I moved him to the Howard Co. School System the following [year] after finding they were scholastically level with the [parochial] school he was attending. Church, grocery stores, pharmacies and physicians are practically at your fingertips. It [is] beautiful and changed so much over the years but I love it here in Columbia.

My name is Karen Griffey. I have been living on Forest Ridge property going on ten years. I enjoy living here in the past and before living here I used to constantly move around. I could not afford my own apartment. Without affordable housing I would still be moving all around and probably would not have a place to live. My youngest son has started school in kindergarten and is now in Middle School in the same community because of affordable housing. So I would say my experience is wonderful.
