THURSTON THRIVES
HOUSING  
 

purpose/scope:

The Housing Action Team has been meeting during the last 3 months of 2013 to develop a strategy and recommendations to ensure housing adequacy and quality for our community. Stability of housing is a key to reducing many health risks, including chronic stress, depression, untreated mental health, poor nutrition and self-care, and respiratory illness. The action team is responding with a comprehensive approach to addressing the housing needs of our community, especially for those who are homeless and severely cost-burdened (spending 50% or more of their income on their housing. The team will present its recommendations to the Board of Health and Thurston Thrives Advisory Council on December 10, 2013.

vision:

We are working together to increase access to affordable and safe housing so that our community health improves. We believe that affordable housing for all people in Thurston County will depend upon the collective efforts of all three sectors: public, non-profit and private market.
