This article explores the process of solving problems of low-income housing communities by analyzing information from documents, participatory observations, group discussions, and in-depth unofficial interviews. According to records, from a total of 1,126 households of urban poor, 391 households have already been supported, and 735 still remain. Solutions to solving these problems have influenced changes on both the community and city levels.
