We are in an affordable housing crisis. There is not a single county in Michigan where someone working full time at minimum wage can afford a 1-bedroom rental. Over 63,000 individuals experienced homelessness in 2017 with countless others at-risk of losing their home. Michigan needs solutions to better serve this vulnerable population. Learn how advocates are taking this message all the way from the local level to Washington DC and how you can become involved.
