Housing: Bridging the Divide
At the 35th Annual Archdiocesan Social Ministry Convocation, March 8, 2014, Beyond the Boundary presented a Workshop entitled Housing: Bridging the Divide. The presenters, Bro. Jerry O’Leary, C.F.X, Peter McIver and Nalisha Gibbs, focused on obstacles to building support for affordable housing in mixed income neighborhoods. One of the biggest obstacles they found is fear based on stereotypes.
Resource material for those who attended and anyone interested in building support for inclusive housing in the city and the region is available at sites listed below:
