United Housing Connection believes that "everyone deserves an address."
On this episode, Ryan sits down with Chief Executive Officer at United Housing Connections, Lorain Crowl, to dive into the heart of this organization.
United Housing Connections is on a “mission to connect people at-risk for or currently experiencing homelessness with safe, sustainable and affordable homes. To that end, we build and manage affordable housing for low-income people and provide prevention and housing programs. Ultimately, we envision an Upstate SC where all people have the opportunity to live in a safe, sustainable and affordable home” (from United Housing Connections website).
Affordable housing is a major issue in the Upstate of South Carolina. Although each person’s story is complicated, many people who are or have experienced homelessness would attest to the fact that a lack of affordable housing contributed to their situation. As Ryan often says in regard to the problem of homelessness: “we need more exits.”
There are no easy solutions to the housing crisis. Lorain and Ryan discuss ideas and current programs that help those experiencing homelessness work towards stable and secure housing.
