Habitat for Humanity Greater Orlando & Osceola County has unveiled a comprehensive plan called Face the Housing Crisis to provide safe, affordable housing with its Cornerstone Housing Framework.
“Our Cornerstone Housing Framework is pioneering a solution to the wicked problem of our local affordable housing crisis and its role in multiple community priorities,” said Catherine Steck McManus, president and CEO of Habitat for Humanity Greater Orlando & Osceola County. “We encourage everyone to join this extraordinary movement and support our quest for change.”
Central Florida’s current housing market faces critical imbalances, resulting in a lack of affordable housing options for individuals and families across the region. Habitat Orlando & Osceola recognizes the urgency to address this complex issue and has developed the Cornerstone Housing™ Framework as a roadmap for transformative change.
The Framework aims to restore balance in the housing market by addressing key challenges, including the need for adequate housing supply, sustainable demand from buyers and an evolved social service model for a rapid and coordinated response.
“A home is more than shelter. Home is the foundation of financial security and quality of life,” said McManus. “Collectively, housing is the cornerstone of community health and well-being.”
