Safe, affordable, and stable housing maintains the health, safety, and emotional well-being of families and children and provides a safe place for children to eat, sleep, play, and grow.
When housing costs outstrip families' incomes, families may live in low-quality and overcrowded housing, move frequently, or become homeless - all of which impact health, academic achievement, and future success.
