The Case for Housing as a Platform: A Philanthropic Perspective
Public housing authorities and affordable housing organizations are critical partners in supporting children of economically challenged, fragile and marginalized families by meeting them ‘where they are’ with 24/7/365/multigenerational systems of services and supports.
