Affordable housing is the key to providing stability for families and neighborhoods, says Jonathan Reckford, CEO of Habitat for Humanity.
He discusses the importance of affordable housing and how it effects the broader economy with Jennifer Goodman, senior editor at BUILDER, a sister publication to Affordable Housing Finance. Reckford says:
People who experience a sense of belonging in a community and who feel that they have a voice very often take steps to improve their own financial situations. Those investments strengthen the local economy and can ultimately create jobs and improve both the financial and physical well-being of others.
