There is an insufficient supply of decent affordable housing to meet today's needs. The price of housing continues to increase beyond the reach of many households. Especially hard hit are low-wage earners who do not earn enough income to rent an average priced apartment, and as more and more gentrification occurs, are forced to commute until they find affordability. How does one use affordable housing to rebuild distressed neighborhoods, design communities of opportunity, generate equitable environments, create a strong sense of belonging and hope for the children's future?
