There’s more than one way to do it. This is a complex issue, and there are many avenues you can take that will bring positive results to the affordable housing landscape. Choose one, choose all. Here are just some ways you can help to alleviate the affordable housing problem today:
1. Check out Habitat for Humanity’s website. Find a local building site. Pick up a hammer. Join the fun.
2. Learn and think about the issue. What factors are causing housing instability and homelessness? What are the consequences? How is lack of affordable housing affecting and being affected by the health, financial stability, educational prospects, and social justice of Americans? Discuss amongst friends, family, and strangers you meet on the bus.
