When you purchase a pie from the Dishgamu Humboldt community land trust you are helping provide affordable housing developments all over Humboldt County. Like the Jaroujiji Youth Housing Project, providing 40 units of housing for homeless and foster youth and youth at risk of homelessness. Continued funding is needed for projects that support elders, families, and low-income individuals all throughout Humboldt County.
Why Build more affordable housing? These days it seems like everywhere you look affordable housing is being created, but why is having a robust affordable housing stock so important? It's easy to see the benefits of affordable housing for those who live in the developments, but how does that benefit the whole community?
Economic stability: Affordable housing allows households to spend less of their income on housing, freeing up resources for other essential needs like healthcare, education, and food. This, in turn, can stimulate local economies as people have more disposable income to spend on goods and services. Affordable housing can help attract and retain a stable workforce, which is vital for local businesses. When workers can afford to live near their jobs, it reduces commute times and absenteeism. High-quality affordable housing projects can have a positive impact on nearby property values, which can benefit existing homeowners.
Health and Education: Children in stable housing environments tend to perform better in school. Affordable housing in good neighborhoods can give families access to better educational opportunities, breaking the cycle of poverty. Stable and affordable housing is linked to better physical and mental health. It reduces stress and overcrowding, leading to healthier, more productive individuals. Affordable housing projects often lead to investment in infrastructure, services, and amenities in the surrounding area, benefiting the entire community. Concentrated poverty and housing instability can be associated with higher crime rates. By providing affordable housing in diverse communities, crime rates can be reduced. Affordable housing provides a safety net for those at risk of homelessness. It ensures that vulnerable individuals and families have stable living conditions, reducing the burden on emergency services and shelters.
Enviromental resilience: Developing affordable housing near public transit and job centers can reduce traffic congestion and lower carbon emissions. It promotes sustainable urban development. Affordable housing can mitigate housing crises during economic downturns, providing a safety net for individuals and families facing financial hardships.
Social Justice: Affordable housing encourages socio-economic diversity, promoting social cohesion and integration. It can lead to more inclusive and tolerant communities. Affordable housing can help reduce income inequality by providing housing options for individuals and families across different income levels. Promoting affordable housing is a step towards greater social equity and justice. It ensures that everyone has access to safe, decent, and affordable living conditions.
