Ep 17 – Miami Homes 4 All

Miami Homes For All collaborates with people across the entire spectrum of their community to identify the best ideas in order to end homelessness in South Florida. Miami is the third least affordable city in the country due to a relatively high-priced housing market, and comparatively lower wages. Consequently, the citizens are cost burdened and forced to make impossible choices between rent, childcare, their education, medications and even food. If you also believe everyone deserves a place to call home, help share and support their mission today. Check out the podcast episode live on 3/2/2020.

Miami Homes For All

Annie Lord

Today we bring you Annie Lord, executive director of Miami Homes For All. The mission of this nonprofit is to end homlessness in South Florida through policy research, advocacy and other initiatives for collective impact. Armed with the best research available, Miami Homes For All collaborates with people across the entire spectrum of their community to identify the best ideas in order to turn visions of a stable and safe Miami into reality.

Miami is the third least affordable city in the country due to a relatively high-priced housing market, and comparatively lower wages. Miami Homes For All works with youth homelessness, adult homelessness, affordable housing and grant making to help bridge this economic gap. A huge part of Miami’s workforce is in the hospitality and healthcare industry. Unfortunately, those average wages are less than $15 an hour, making the divide even larger for employed people who are helping to fuel the economy. Consequently, the citizens are cost burdened and forced to make impossible choices between rent, childcare, their education, medications and even food.

Miami Homes For All believes everyone deserves a place to call home. Miami-Dade County needs at least 130,000 more homes to meet its housing gap. The good news, we can help support their mission and help get people off the streets, to a place they deserve.
