Op-Ed: Many Need Help Year Round

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, numerous organizations are coming together to donate turkeys and essential food items to families facing economic hardships within our community. While these initiatives aim to bring comfort during the holiday season, it is imperative to recognize that many of the recipients are the very individuals struggling to afford their rent.

This sobering reality emphasizes the need for sustained, year-round support that extends beyond the generosity of seasonal contributions. We believe it is time to channel our collective efforts towards advocating for legislative measures that address the systemic challenges contributing to housing insecurity.

At the heart of our mission is the understanding that stable housing is a fundamental human right. By actively engaging with policymakers, we can foster an environment where families are not only provided with a bountiful Thanksgiving meal but are also granted the necessary resources to secure stable housing throughout the entire year.

This Thanksgiving, let us unite in the pursuit of comprehensive solutions that empower individuals and families to break free from the cycle of financial instability. Together, we can make a lasting impact by supporting and championing legislative initiatives that prioritize affordable housing and create a more equitable and resilient community.

Together, let’s build a future where everyone has the opportunity for a stable and secure place to call home.
