In Search of Shelter
Nobody Should Live On the Streets
All-Time High of Housing Shortage
More than ever, this country is facing a lack of housing for low-wage workers. Poor families who live in rental housing are forced to pay up to 60% of bills, and this only puts them into further poverty. A poor family shouldn't have to pay more than 30% of housing income, and a recent census has revealed that 80% of poor families have to pay above this rate.
Help Put a Roof Over Their Heads
This is but one example of how some people are forced to live because of the housing issue. If we could open more rental housing and lower the income cost forced on them, then these children could live under a roof, safe from the weather.
