Unfortunately, millions of families today are struggling economically. This is at a time when decent and affordable rental apartments are hard to come by. Many households are spending 50 percent or more of their income on housing and 7.1 million American households cannot find affordable housing. That is unacceptable.
Owning a home remains one of the best ways for families to build wealth and enter the middle class. However, for decades, wages have not kept up with the median costs of homes, putting homeownership out of reach for millions of families. The housing crisis that began in 2007 wiped-out the entire household wealth of millions of families who had most of their wealth in their homes. We support these organizations helping to get and keep familiies off the street as well as make homeownership more attainable for first time homebuyers, as well as for the millions of families across the country who lost their homes to foreclosure.
