Public Housing Awareness: ReThink Why Housing Matters



ReThinkHousing.org: Public housing is more than just a place to live.  Public housing provides hope, creates opportunities, fosters communities, unites families and gives purpose. Watch, read, and share the inspirational stories from public housing and rethink its impact on individuals, families, and communities.


We all share a common ground in the struggles we face and the successes we celebrate on our paths to a better life for ourselves and our families."
