Affordable Housing Conversation

Mon. Nov 28, 7 pm, Ann Ross Fellowship Hall & Zoom

 “Housing is absolutely essential to human flourishing.  Without stable shelter, it all falls apart.”  Matthew Desmond, author of Evicted:  Poverty and Profit in the American City

Please join us as we begin a conversation on what can we at CVUUS  can do to help address the critical need for affordable housing in Addison County.   We will brainstorm ideas, develop some action steps and reconvene at a mutually agreeable time. The proposal for this conversation arose from the participants of the Caste (author Isabel Wilkerson) book group.  We wondered about appropriations and what could we do and in our brainstorming housing was mentioned and how we took 2 rentals off the market when we repurposed the Fenn House for religious exploration and offices.  As Tom Morgan said at that meeting maybe this is our way of addressing reparation. Light refreshments will be served. Please RSVP to Mike at Organizers:  Scott Barkdoll, Tom Morgan, Jean Terwilliger, Mike Greenwood and 9 other members of Caste book group.
