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.
