Ideas About Housing

1. Housing alone will not solve the problems of poverty. It is a necessary but not sufficient situation. In my long tenure of affordable housing, I have rarely seen people who are decently housed turn their life around. Usually there are other significant issues facing their lives, unemployment, drugs, family disjunction, bad boyfriends, wasteful spending etc. That is why supportive services are necessary. Even a better solution would be to provide low income people cash transfers rather than services.
