For most people, buying a home is an essential part of financial independence. However, for many of our community’s families, homeownership is out of reach. Low-wage jobs with few benefits make it impossible for a family to afford a decent place to live, much less qualify to purchase a home of their own. Even full-time workers find themselves paying half their income on rent alone. Families are forced to make impossible choices. Rent or healthcare? Food or school supplies?
