Stuff About Me:

I am a person dedicated to the cause of afforable housing in my volunteering efforts. I want nothing more than an opportunity and eventualy a world where everyone has at least basic needs provided with absolutely no worry and I support anything that helps those goals however I can. So this means I spend a good amount of time volunteering with organizations similar to Habitat for Humanity. But I have also spent a fair amount of time volunteering to support and create arboretums.
On a personal level the reason why I am in such support of affordable housing as a cause, I have seen the effects of not living in a home you can afford or living in a home that is too run down to live in first hand. It is not ideal,  safe, or a very enfranchising environment. I want everyone to have affordable housing because it actually makes neighborhoods better when people have and take ownership of their surroundings. Neighborhods are cleaner, look better, and have less crime, essentially it is to everyone's benefit to make housing more afforable.
The reason this is such a big issue is that no where in the United States can a person working a minimum wage full time job afford housing and essential bills such as food, heat, and water. In many places it's actually slightly more than 2 jobs that is required at minimum wage full time, some places even 3. This is simply unacceptable. That is why I do everything I can to chage this situation into a better one.
