Homeownership Is Social Justice

“Homeownership needs to be a policy priority for anyone concerned with graduation rates, crime or poverty in the state.” – Daniel Macdonald, PHD., Assistant Professor of Economics, CSU San Bernardino

Researchers at California State University, San Bernardino’s Department of Economics recently published “California Homeownership and Sociocultural Factors,” a study on the effects. The study found, increased homeownership in minority groups has a positive effect on high school graduation rates. This implies that increased homeownership among minorities could improve economic opportunities for these communities. California is not building affordable new homes fast enough to meet the growing demand of the state’s population, some residents must rent or are even forced to move out of the state.

The WIN Project is looking to provide the solution to this major problem. We believe in equality for all to be housed, that no human should have to Live on the streets or tents. Help us move to toward helping are communities realize this dream.

Homeless Skyrocketed by 35%

Every night, an estimated 59,000 people sleep on the streets of Los Angeles ––a figure that’s skyrocketed by 35% in the last year alone. The problem is so bad that the mayor has declared a state of emergency, and in November, L.A. voters approved a $1.2 billion bond to build 10,000 apartment units over the next decade for the chronically homeless.

However, it takes two to five years to build this kind of permanent housing because of the city’s complex building code and zoning rules–and the city needs a fix right now. The City of Los Angeles has additional projects funded but not enough funding for this immediate issue, and the rents are skyrocketing as the homeless population soars.

We need affordable housing, less complexity from the building department and a bit of humanity. We all need to play a major role in being humane and address the homeless situation. We all need to be mindful. These are all fellow humans who cannot afford to live here and the community does not want this in there backyard. Most pets are treated better then human. Make an effort and come up with quicker solutions.

REDEVELOPMENT AGENCY DISMANTLING

The California Supreme Court today issued a partial stay that halts the dismantling of California’s redevelopment agencies. The stay is in response to a lawsuit, California Redevelopment Association. v. Matosantos, which challenges the validity of eliminating the redevelopment agencies. Under the order, redevelopment agencies are still barred from incurring new indebtedness, transferring assets, acquiring real property, entering into new contracts or modifying existing contracts, entering into new partnerships, adopting or amending redevelopment plans and other activities. The court announced that it will hear the lawsuit as early as possible in 2011 and that it will issue an opinion prior to January 15, 2012.
