I can't believe it is worth it to Sahara Mobile Home Park to have a 77 year old man telling this story in the newspaper rather than moving this guy across the park. Crazy. Especially when the management makes it clear they have no intention of fixing anything unless the government pays for it.

Wow! I am amazed! I am a resident of this property owner, and I am absolutely astounded that they would not assist their resident. The cost to move that home to a vacant lot within that park cannot be more than $2,000 (and what do you want to bet they probably know a vendor that would be willing to discount their standard price - has anyone even asked??)
The park owners won't entertain the thought of footing a $2M bill to shore up the creek bed within their property lines (thus the plea for 'assistance'), yet they have the opportunity to make a difference in the life of a resident, who I am sure, during his residency has paid that park an excess of $2,500 in rent. Yet the park is not willing to make an investment in the tenant by moving him? What do you want to bet they still expect him to pay his full rent!
Shame on the owners of Sahara MHP! I don't necessarily blame the property management company, they just work for the owners of the property.
This company owns THREE mobile home parks in our community. Surely they can take care of a resident when an act of nature destroys a home located on land THEY own!

The owners want everyone to move out so they can make more money with more expensive real estate. Why would they help anyone there?
