Mario I am Les Fitzpatrick the president of the Clark County Chapter of the
NFB here in Vancouver. We have a great chapter and we would love to have you
in it. We do have a paratransit system here but also the bus system is quite
good. A person could live here on  fifty thousand if you lived very
conservatively . A house for 4 (2 bedroom) would rent for around a thousand
to twelve hundred a month an apartment would be about the same. A 3 or 4
bedroom would go for around 1,500 and up. There are Christian private
schools however they are quite expensive. Child care is also expensive. East
vancouver is really nice although there are some neighborhoods close to down
town that are pretty nice as well. I moved here from out of state in 2008 so
I know what you are looking at. When I first came before my wife and family
came I rented an apartment in a bad part of town for around 600 a month I
hope I have answered all your questions please let me know if there are
anymore. you can call me at 360-521-5380 Les Fitzpatrick

Hello fellow NFB of Vancouver,
My name is Mario and I am considering moving to Vancouver, Washington.
However, in order to make this big decision I have several questions that I
hope you can help me out with.
1.  Is there a local paratransit system there?  If not, how can one best be
an independent traveler?  For example, going to the grocery store, going to
the local NFB meetings, etc.
2.  If we decide to make the move.  How is the price of housing?  For
starters, a two bedroom home or apartment?  We would be moving from
Louisville, Kentucky.  Could one live on making $50,000 a year confortably?
3.  Are there Christian private schools there?
4.  In which area of Vancouver would you recommend a family of four to make
their first home?
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
