As the national economy continues to heal, the recovery is uneven and many Americans are being left behind. Almost 14 million people are still looking for a job or forced to take part-time work because they can’t land a full-time job. Home-ownership levels are a 30 year low and housing affordability for renters and homeowners continues to be under great pressure. In the below piece I argue that a growing economy and a compassionate society require a robust housing agenda. I would welcome any comments and suggestions about the language that the housing advocate community should be using to persuade top policy makers that the time is now to push for an anti poverty agenda that has housing at its core.
