Top Reads, Week of 11/5

Check out our top three reads of the week. They cover the challenges and opportunities facing American communities right now. This week, we’re delving into a report on jobs that fall short of the middle-class salary threshold, Opportunity Zones, and the impact a felony charge has on one’s ability to participate in democracy.

Progress and Possibilities for Housing Every Veteran

Our commitment to helping house homeless and at-risk veterans won’t let up until there are no more ex-military men and women living on the streets. It’s hard work, especially in hot, high-cost markets. In honor of Veteran's Day, we're highlighting the creative solutions and partnerships that build supportive housing communities and make it possible for us reach our collective goal.
