HOUSING IN EVANSVILLE
Evansville needs 3,000 more affordable housing units.
Housing has a critical role in the overall health, well-being and stability of society's most important assets: our neighbors, children and families.
Housing experts agree that homelessness keeps families trapped in a "here and now" cycle where a good day is defined as securing the next family meal or a warm bed tonight for their children.
More sustainable solutions such as a better job, education, and securing links to social capital are simply unattainable for families that are not housed. Experts agree that a housing-first approach allows families to begin achieving stability, which sets them on a much quicker path to self-sufficiency and a more sustainable life.
