Stable, affordable housing has benefits for every aspect of a community and a family. For a family or an individual, stable and affordable housing leads to better school performance and attendance for students, better overall health and health outcomes, more productive employees, and more social and civic engagement.
Affordable housing can impact nearly every aspect of an individual’s life – from their physical and mental health to educational outcomes. A stable, high-quality home also significantly impacts entire communities, making them safer, more cohesive, and more attractive for families, individuals, employers, and others.
In short, everyone benefits when communities have affordable homes.
