Past Webinar: Housing as Community Development

Housing as Community Development:
Staying in Your Community as you Age

We know how important our community is to our health and well-being. When we feel connected to the people and space that surrounds us, we feel at home. As we age, for a variety of reasons, it may become too difficult to remain in our homes and we may need to consider our alternatives.

If we need to leave our homes, how can we stay in our community? What are our options if our towns are small and isolated, or if the options available are unaffordable?

Communities across the country are addressing this very challenge, and developing innovative housing solutions. Deb Keller, Executive Director of Bath Housing Authority will give us an overview of developing affordable housing options; Rebecca Dillon from Gawron Turgeon Architects will share information about the importance of design in building senior housing solutions; and, Reverend Fowler, Executive Director of Cass Community Services in Detroit will share their innovative tiny house community.

We hope you will join us!
