Home Sweet Home
Director of Asssets, St. Andrews Housing Group
I am deeply committed to human rights in housing. Every person has the right to secure, affordable and adequate housing. This applies to persons of all income levels including the very low income and those in the median range. Often, policy is directed at alleviating shortages for the very low income and the homeless, while this is important, it is equally important to solve some of the pressures on the workforce so they do not shift down further to lower income populations as many are one paycheck away from homelessness themselves. Finding options for affordable housing development for workforce populations is one way to close the backdoor to homelessness.
