THE STORY:

FATHER FRED FOUNDATION wrote -

Affordable housing is in dire demand in northern Michigan and particularly in Traverse City. The 2012 Grand Traverse County Housing Inventory and Strategy found regional families increasingly spend huge chunks of their budgets on housing.

According to the report, nearly half of all rental households pay more than 30 percent of their income for housing. For households earning $20,000 or less, the percentage is nearly 80 percent.

The area's high cost of living, particularly for housing, makes it difficult for many low-income residents to keep a roof over their heads and pay their monthly bills. The retiree- and tourist-reliant Grand Traverse region leans heavily on service industry workers — restaurant staff, healthcare aides, lawn care, agricultural and construction workers — and many don't make much more than minimum wage.

At The Father Fred Foundation, requests for financial assistance for housing continue to grow. The number of households seeking housing assistance in 2013 represented a 3% increase from 2012, and a 33% increase from 2011.

Money raised for Father Fred through the Art Van Charity Challenge would go directly toward helping families and individuals avoid eviction and/or obtain affordable housing - giving them the hope to continue moving forward in their lives.
