In April, FOCUS held a free, virtual forum: FOCUS on Affordable Housing. The topic of affordable housing is complex, with interrelated issues that can have major impacts on our community and its residents.
The results from the Life Needs Assessment Survey are in – based on the results, FOCUS decided to host a forum on Affordable Housing! Thank you to all who participated, and helped us to identify this topic.
The forum will look at affordable housing, the issues surrounding it, and the resources our community has to support residents seeking housing.
This topic impacts the lives of young adults who can’t afford to move into available apartments, families trying to find affordable apartments and homes, and residents in low-income neighborhoods seeking safe housing.
Panelists: Walt Dixie, Executive Director, Jubilee Homes; Sally Santangelo, Executive Director, CNY Fair Housing; Megan Stuart, Director, Housing and Homeless Coalition of Central New York; Palmer Harvey, Co-founder, Syracuse Tenants Union.
