In 2017 National Housing Trust (NHT) partnered with Enterprise Community Partners to create Where Will We Live, a campaign which highlights the importance of affordable housing by uplifting resident voices and drawing the connection between access to affordable housing and health, education and economic opportunity.
Throughout 2018, the Where Will We Live team traveled across the country interviewing over 150 low-income residents and community members about their experiences with affordable housing and how access to federal housing assistance helps residents access greater economic opportunity, health care, supportive services, and education.
The growing gallery of resident stories is available as a resource for stakeholders to use to help make the case for affordable housing for low-income residents – it can even be filtered by state and cross-sector topic. This information can be shared via blogs, newsletters, tweets, or other media. Access the gallery here.
