Event Details

Home ownership no longer provides a clear and direct pathway out of poverty for low-income families.  While intra-familial transfers of property have long been viewed as key to accumulating wealth and interrupting the cycle of inter-generational poverty, inflated home values and disproportionate enrollment in sub-prime lending products that led to high rates of foreclosures during the financial crisis, combined with present-day economic realities of wage stagnation and slow job growth for low-and-mid-skilled workers, have undermined this long held belief and practice. 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.
