The landscape of American communities is rapidly evolving.
The individuals and families living in cities, towns and municipalities from coastal hubs to the heartland of America are redefining their communities. The want for sustainability, environmental stewardship, increased access to goods and services, and usable, safe communal amenities is driving local leaders to rethink how they create vibrant, diverse communities.
To meet this need, local economies are diversifying – attracting businesses outside the traditional economic drivers of an area. Local and regional companies are engaging with the communities they serve. Technology is driving civic engagement.
However, there remains a fundamental disconnect that hinders these efforts: housing.
This #GivingTuesday, we ask that you to take the next step – and make a donation to support our mission to expand homeownership opportunity for everyone.
Next Step – in conjunction with our members and partners in the factory-built housing space – is also rethinking how to create more vibrant communities. We are educating individuals and families, preparing them to be successful homeowners. We are examining the positive impact of sustainable housing in communities. We are working with local housing and community providers to bring more affordable housing options to low and moderate-income families.
This #GivingTuesday, we hope that you will consider making a gift to support affordable housing in your community. Your contribution helps hard working families achieve their dreams of homeownership, and supports these community building and revitalization efforts. Visit our website or Facebook page to donate now, and help Next Step support more families in communities nationwide.
