With sky-rocketing housing prices, the middle class is being squeezed out of affordable housing and into increasingly longer commutes, while the homeless population steadily increases.  Is there a fix? This seminar looks at that question, with an assessment of the root causes of our housing woes, and an examination of the range of solutions available.  


Our co-chairs from the legal and non-profit sectors have designed a day of in depth discussion with the experts who work on this issue daily.  We selected leaders from the development, finance, non-profit, legal, and planning sectors to learn from.  While housing is an increasingly intractable issue, there are a range of tools available to address this challenge. 

Join us for a deep dive into the problem and its resolution.
