With an increased need for accessible and affordable housing solutions, many are seeking guidance on how to navigate these challenges. In response, Homes for All is proud to introduce our Affordable Housing Toolkit – a comprehensive resource designed to provide timely, effective, and consistent information to support individuals and communities in making informed decisions about affordable housing options. Explore the toolkit to empower yourself and others in ensuring safe and affordable homes for everyone this fall and winter.

Creating vibrant communities relies on acknowledging key factors that contribute to their success: homes situated close to jobs, essential services, amenities, transportation, healthcare, and top-notch schools. Our vision for ideal communities prioritizes safety, cleanliness, walkability, and comfort. However, achieving this vision necessitates overcoming obstacles such as the influence of location and proximity on accessing essential services and job opportunities, along with external factors that impact overall well-being. 

It is paramount to understand that housing affordability significantly influences business decisions and hiring practices. A workforce unable to afford housing within Montgomery County will seek opportunities elsewhere, leading to an exodus of talent and subsequently, businesses. Furthermore, the location of a home directly correlates with school performance, work attendance, and overall health, underscoring the critical role of accessible and affordable housing in fostering a prosperous and sustainable workforce.  

As community leaders and business owners you can use these strategies to amplify the Homes For All message and combat misinformation and discriminatory opinions. 

  • Attend events coordinated by the community and municipal offices 
  • Reshare and post about community/municipal events to encourage greater participation 
  • Respond to misinformation with the facts and point neighbors to the source of truth. 
  • Speak out about your support of addressing housing affordability in Montgomery County and creating more high-quality, affordable homes in their communities. 
  • Share positive news from your community
