Davidson Housing Coalition Spotlights Its Resident, Elgin Nathan

by | Apr 9, 2022

Elgin Nathan, Resident of the Cottages

“You can’t beat it,” remarks Elgin Nathan of the Davidson Housing Coalition (DHC) apartment he rents on Jetton Street. Elgin moved into one of DHC’s Jetton Street duplexes in December 2021. “I like the quiet atmosphere. I have nice neighbors. And, it’s a great location—close to everything. I just jump on my scooter to get to Harris Teeter or head to Davidson’s basketball games.”

Elgin, a 63-year-old disabled Air Force veteran, has limited mobility and appreciates the handicapped access that his current apartment offers. He served as a computer operator with the Military Airlift Command in California just after the Viet Nam War ended. He learned about DHC from his Veterans Affairs counselor in Charlotte. “The application process was a gem. I know because this was not my first rodeo. Candi (DHC’s property manager) walked me through everything. She was clear about what I needed to get into one of DHC’s rentals and she helped me get it.”

“I love Davidson. DHC is wonderful. The staff is very nice and very helpful. I hope to be here for a long time.”
