The idea of being homeless is a terrifying notion for most of us, yet the number of people without adequate housing amounts to the staggering number of more than a billion and a half. Many countries are dealing with the mass migration of people fleeing wars, ethnic conflicts, famine, tyrannical rulers and now emergencies due to climate change, which includes rising oceans and fires. All of the mentioned causes puts an emphesize on the importance of Afforable Housing.
In North America alone, homelessness is rising. A number of issues are at play, but the rising costs of rent or home ownership, in combination with stagnant wages, has put affordable housing out of reach for many.
Supplying adequate shelter means providing vital protection against the elements while offering security in times of crisis. Personal safety and dignity can go a long way towards lifting people out of poverty while sinultaneously moving them forward in regards to making more self-impowered personal and family life choices.
