Cultivating Community Solutions to the Housing Crisis

This short video was created by HSN’s volunteer Outreach Housing Action Team to educate the community about the housing crisis and some innovative responses of local individuals. Between November 2019 and June 2020 the team showed the video to over 400 people around Jefferson County at screenings with neighborhood groups, faith groups, service clubs, and more. These screenings were followed by facilitated conversations, so that people could process the information and ask questions together.  Read about how one group chose to take action!


In releasing the video online we hope to reach broader audience with this critical message. We hope that this video will spark conversations about housing with your neighbors, friends, and colleagues. 


“Our local housing solutions will require wide community involvement, and each of us who are interested in getting involved have different interests, gifts and talents we might be able to bring to bear on those solutions.” – Outreach Housing Action Team Member
