The Many Hands board is grateful to those who attended the Educational Forum on Housing earlier this week. Our thanks to Many Hands member, Molly Peter, and her colleagues at Compass for opening their office space to us and for donating the delicious appetizers. We were so fortunate to have two distinguished speakers: Phyllis Caldwell, Co-Vice Chair, Community Preservation and Development Corporation and Polly Donaldson, Director, DC Department of Housing and Community Development. They deftly explained the current state of the housing market in Washington DC and the metro area and led an interactive discussion about the housing challenges that poor and moderate income families face.
As you know, Housing is one of four focus areas for Many Hands. To learn more about our area's housing challenges, please browse relevant articles on the subject.
