When HUD created subsidized housing for elders, the goal was to create a safe and secure home for people who could not afford full market rate housing. But certain realities were created to confront elders. Owners believed that not only were they in charge of their buildings, but that they were in charge of their tenants.

It is a dark and stormy night. After weeks of foul weather marked by unrelenting rain, Riverby is inundated by a fierce thunderstorm and torrential rain, a true nor'easter. The town center is flooded. Riverside Manor, an apartment building for the elderly, is surrounded by flood waters that keep even emergency personnel from approaching.
