Telling It Like It Is

Philadelphians in need of affordable housing tell their stories
The human stories behind the affordable housing crisis in America

This past June 1, we began receiving applications for our newest residence, 2415 N. Broad Street, scheduled to open up later this summer.  Over 1,000 persons stood in line to apply -- for a total of 88 units.  (Read more about that day here.)  We took the opportunity to do interviews with many of the persons in line to ask about their situation and their need for housing.  These are important stories that all Americans need to hear -- they tell the human story of the affordable housing crisis in this country.

Project HOME staff member Rachel Ehrgood took these videos.  All participants gave us permission to share these stories.
