About Affordable Housing

“When people have some control over their living space, the studies show health benefits — physical and mental health, lessening of anxiety, deeper sense of security and well being. People talk about being able to close their own door; it’s something symbolic where you can enjoy privacy, space within, but it allows you to walk out into the community. It’s your choice – you can open or close it as you choose. You can have control over your meal preparation, your rest patterns and the degree to which you clean your home. In congested or unsafe living conditions, you don’t always have that capacity to choose.”

– Margaret Nally, former Board Member
