Andrew Cleland tries not to panic about his eviction hearing on July 6.

Instead, the 75-year-old focuses on what he can do to keep himself and his 82-year-old wife, Carol, in their apartment.

He’s applied for rental assistance. He’s planned how he’ll travel to the courthouse. A recent accident ruined his car, and he can’t afford to buy a new one. And so he has set aside the $20 each way it will cost for a cab.

He and Carol also have called their children, asking if they could live with them if they’re forced out of the one-bedroom apartment in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, where they’ve lived for seven years.
