  • MakeRoom’s campaign to bring attention to the millions of families who struggle to pay rent.  Every first of the month, when rent due, the organization arranges a concert in the living room of a family struggling to pay rent.  On September first the R&B group Miguel played in the home of Devona.  Devona, a single mother from Detroit, Michigan who is also raising a nice and nephew, pays over half of her income in rent to keep her family in a safe suburban home.
  • The National Housing Conference (NHC) will be hosting a webinar on September 8th  to discuss the ways in which affordable housing development policies are linked to educational outcomes and ways in which organizations are addressing the issue.
