Affordable Housing In PBC

The Affordable Housing Issue Group has come into existence as the county declares a housing crisis their top priority, that our county’s economic success, family stability, and quality of life are dependent on all residents having adequate housing. While this may be obvious, the reality is not the case at this moment in time.

We work to advocate and educate for affordable housing through observing and speaking at legislative hearings and participating in partnerships with likeminded organizations. We speak to funding, zoning, fundamental policies, and public attitudes. Taking advantage of new media is also a priority – to push information and announcements to our group, our League of Women Voters chapter, and the general public throughout the county and state. We also self-educate attending workshops and conferences. Who are we working with? The Florida Housing Coalition, Palm Beach County Housing Summit Task Force, Faith In Action Palm Beach County, Legal Aid Society of Palm Beach County and the League’s Poverty Action Team, with special attention to children and the homeless.

What do we need? Desperately seeking expertise working with Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Your presence is welcome whether you choose to be active or want to simply observe and learn about a complicated issue.
