Why You Need to Say Yes to Affordable Housing
America’s homelessness crisis is getting worse, despite the billions spent each year to fix it. Single family home prices continue to rise. In California alone, fewer than 20% of households can even qualify to buy a house. While the problem seems overwhelming, viable solutions are actually within reach, especially if people stop saying, “Not in my backyard."
Andy is joined by Tomiquia Moss, founder and CEO of All Home CA; and Tommy Newman, vice president of engagement and activation at United Way of Greater Los Angeles. They talk about humanizing unhoused people and about streamlining affordable housing construction to fill the state’s multimillion-unit shortage.
