Addressing racial wealth gaps
Sisseton, SD — To move rural communities forward by creating opportunities for improved housing stability and economic development
Teaching and coaching community members to understand why they are in the current situation and how to combat the problematic system that may be causing the barriers to go forward is a slow process. The communities that had received some coaching prior to Grow Housing had a better understanding.
While housing may be viewed as a physical structure in a community, the role it plays to the individual and community is vital for vibrancy. Some of the communities now have other groups working on different aspects that tie back to housing.
