No person deserves an eviction. We must continue to expand affordable housing options focusing on the voucher program. This allowing families and individuals to obtain a voucher that can help pay for parts or full rent for a temporary period of time while finances recover for that family or individual.
Longterm vouchers allow for families & residents to find a place of living in where the voucher pays for a percentage of the rent. This specifically helping single parents, veterans, and families/individuals who live under the poverty line.
Expansion of new affordable housing units that are in proximity of public transportation, grocery stores, and healthcare facilities.
Investing in first time home buyer programs that teaches individuals on how to save money, how to be financially responsible, and how to build enough credit to purchase a home.
Protections of renters and renter units to make sure renters are not being taken advantage of and their units needing to meet housing code compliances.
We need to support and house our houseless population and make sure they receive the proper help that they need. This includes mental health and addiction supports. A long term plan that will remain consistent can help change the future. In addition, introducing job readiness, pathway to return back to school, and contiued mentorship is needed.
