Poe Htoo and Eh Paw both work as housekeepers at The Carolina Inn. They love that the Inn is close to where they live, and they have friends at work. When they’re not at work, they like to cook, garden, and play with their kids.

Poe Htoo and Eh Paw met at a refugee camp in Thailand while picking corn. They have been married for ten years, and they have three children, Clay (11), John (5), and Josie Paw (2). Clay recently completed sixth grade, and John is starting kindergarten next year. They are looking forward to being close to school and having bigger rooms!

The family has been in Chapel Hill for nine years, and currently lives in a cramped three-bedroom apartment in Northside.

Poe Htoo and Eh Paw never thought that they would be able to have a home, and they are glad that they have finally found something that will be affordable for them. They are excited to stay in the Northside neighborhood, which is close to school, work, and their community center. Everyone in the neighborhood is friendly and always greets each other. They like that they can walk everywhere, and they feel very safe.
