Why Affordable Housing Matters

affordableDid you know that 27% of South Carolina children live in poverty? Evidence-based research has shown that when families have stable, decent, accessible and affordable homes they are better able to find employment, achieve mobility and their children perform better in school. Homeownership leads to increases in graduation rates, children’s good health, net family wealth and decreases in children’s behavioral problems, reliance on government assistance, asthma and other health issues.
