Decent, stable, and affordable housing is crucial for a family's overall health and well-being. Families with decent housing experience fewer health issues and are less likely to require emergency care. Children living in quality and affordable housing are significantly more likely to graduate from high school and college. Families living in affordable homes have double the discretionary income to pay down debt or invest in a savings account.
