Seniors get new place to live - Jacksonville Daily News

Christina Batiste lived in Jones County with her daughter prior to moving to Jacksonville. She moved into her new apartment Aug. 2 and says she loves everything about it - particularly the fact that it's a nice place to live within her means. "... it's a beautiful place and it was just magic to get this place and it's affordable," she said. "It's close to the shopping area - mall. I can walk to my bank. It's just so nice because I have my own place and I love it here."
