Bridging the Divide Between Homelessness and Affordable Housing
73% of DC residents earning around $15,000 or less experience severe housing cost burden, which is defined as paying more than 50% of your income on housing. DC's housing isn't affordable because the definition of affordable housing is paying 30% of your income for housing.
Finding a Solution
Join Street Sense for our next community forum and networking event to learn about affordable housing in DC and how the DC community can bridge the large gap between homelessness and affordable housing.
This community forum event is free and open to the public and is intended for people who are interested in:
Learning about the general issues that people experiencing homelessness face in DC
Hearing from experts about affordable housing and why DC's housing isn't affordable to people experiencing homelessness and other low-income residents
Discussing solutions to bridging the large divide between homelessness and affordable housing
Connecting with organizations that specialize in affordable housing and other services for people experiencing homelessness in the DC community
The forum will be held in Street Sense's headquarters at the Church of the Epiphany on December 7th. Networking with light refreshments will begin at 6:30 PM and the main panel will begin at 7:00 PM. Please register all attendees through Eventbrite for our planning purposes.
