Regarding the Women of Hope article ("Women's rehab facility worries new neighbors in Modesto," Nov. 19, Page A-1): I wanted to put my two cents into the debate regarding their potential new home on Maze Boulevard.
I currently rent two Modesto homes to Nirvana drug and alcohol rehabilitation clients. One is a men's home near the MJC West campus and the other is a women's home off of Carpenter and Woodland.
I have never had one complaint about either house from any neighbors or property owners. If you drove by either home, you would think it is owner-occupied. The yards are 100 percent maintained by the clients, and at the yearly inspections, the interiors are clean and free of abuse. I wish I could say that about my other tenants.
