Library hosts Affordable Housing: A Community Conversation
Public forum to explore barriers to affordable housing
FREDERICKSBURG, VIRGINIA, October 27, 2017- Central Rappahannock Regional Library (CRRL) will host a public forum on affordable housing on Monday, November 6, at
Salem Church Branch, 7:00-8:30 p.m.
Affordable Housing: A Community Conversation will be a chance to hear from experts, such as Janel Donohue, President of the Rappahannock United Way (RUW), who will present data and findings from the ALICE Project and share information about how RUW assists residents with housing issues. According to the United Way ALICE Project report, 39% of Virginia families are struggling to afford their basic needs and are considered ALICE: Asset Limited, Income Constrained, and Employed. That means many working families are stressed, and the quality of life for our community overall is diminished.
