Housing for Us

Housing for Us

Housing for Us is a show about affordable housing. Half of our episodes will be Fixer-Upper episodes. Not everyone realizes just how desperately our housing system is in need of reform. We talk to people who have been through the worst of our housing system. Our housing system isn’t a dream home; it’s a real fixer-upper. The other half will be Cribs episodes: our homage to MTV Cribs. But instead of hearing about the housing of the fabulously wealthy, we’ll be hearing about people who live in fabulous affordable housing programs around the world. Change can be scary, but you’ll be eager to reform our housing system when you hear from people who have benefited from these great programs!
