The financial gains from ownership remain real, but only if you get to keep your home, and then, only if you are able to continue to do so, over time.

The ABCD Solutions Series provides a platform for discussion of federal, state, and local policies and/or systems that adversely impact the lives of men, women, and children living in poverty in the Commonwealth. The forums aim for conversation and ideas of how we might better reframe, rethink and/or repackage existing policies and systems to achieve better life outcomes for our most vulnerable residents across the state.
