About

William Collins, a home developer in West Hartford, Connecticut, takes a different method. A community is made up of all its members, and Collins argues that everyone should have access to affordable housing. It benefits residents immediately, but also improves the community as a whole. Historically, cities constructed plain brick cubes and referred to them as houses. The reasoning was that low-income housing only needed to provide the basics, and some believed that if low-income housing provided anything more, people would have no incentive to get jobs and move to better housing.
