For most people, a home is their most valuable, profitable, and stable investment—or, at least, it should be. In one of the country’s most expensive housing markets, hundreds of thousands of people living in Miami-Dade have been priced out of the stability of a place to live. This essential stability enables people to have success in school, in work, and in society. If we do nothing to help people achieve this basic stability, they suffer, those around them suffer, and the effects keep radiating outward to the point that individual hardships become societal hardships. To avoid such hardships, it is of the utmost importance that we help people as much as we can to attain the stability of home ownership.
