Care Association is working on alleviating problems caused by the affordable housing crisis. Our approach is multi-faceted, including education. The purpose of our blog is to share ideas, to inspire readers to work together to find solutions, and for sharing ways for people to help themselves. The blog is not a place for venting or complaining, but for remaining positive and encouraging solutions.
Care Association plans, develops, and implements innovative strategies to alleviate economic burdens on lower- and middle-income households. We serve households in the United States that pay more than 30% of their gross income on housing or are transient because of lack of affordable housing. With the Care For Us web platform, we aim first to establish connections between households that are unable to compete in inflated real estate markets and homeowners who prefer to offer housing on their own terms. Secondly, we aim to connect and offer goods and services to those in need. Thirdly, we curate information and provide links to resources to inspire and enrich users’ experience.
Care Association operates by its motto, "Care is Kind. " While rising housing costs, rising education costs, and limited governmental progress suffocate the finances of millions of Americans, Care Association endeavors to alleviate hardships and aims to reduce the gap between those who have and those who don’t by providing a platform that enables care. Our pilot project is the CareForUs.us website, which aims to enable homeowners to find tenants to fill affordable vacancies without placing an ad. Allowing homeowners to get to know prospective tenants before signing a lease provides a more secure outlook, enabling them to consider reducing rent rates to accommodate lower incomes.
Care Association has provided goods and services to the public by volunteering time, expenses, and expertise.
Our activities have included:
Providing donated items to people and nonprofit organizations in need of them, such as used books for families and skills-learning tools for enrichment programs
Public workshops teaching emotional self-management skills
Advocacy for affordable housing
