When landlords don’t make necessary repairs, tenants can be overwhelmed with extra costs and ultimately evicted. This Washington Post article explains how eviction leads to poverty. Please contact us to learn how you can support affordable homeownership. We are proud to help Bryan and College Station low-income families build and purchase their own homes. This “hand up” model builds capacity and strengthens the community by having partner families build each other’s homes.
Author Emily Badger describes Matthew Desmond’s new book “Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City,” which recommends expanding a voucher program. The Habitat model is another way to combat this problem. We offer low-income families affordable mortgages so they can own safe, decent homes and escape the spiral into poverty mentioned in Desmond’s book.
