  • - DANIELLE: SO IT REALLY WAS
  • 00:01:04.110 --> 00:01:05.110
  • JUST LIKE A DOMINO EFFECT OF
  • 00:01:05.110 --> 00:01:07.190
  • EVENTS.
  • 00:01:07.190 --> 00:01:09.050
  • IT WAS NOT JUST LIKE ONE EVENT
  • 00:01:09.050 --> 00:01:10.020
  • THAT CAUSED IT.
  • 00:01:10.020 --> 00:01:13.000
  • I WAS WORKING AND I WAS INVOLVED
  • 00:01:13.000 --> 00:01:15.020
  • IN APARTMENT FIRE.
  • 00:01:15.020 --> 00:01:17.210
  • AT THE TIME I JUST HAD MY TWO
  • 00:01:17.210 --> 00:01:18.190
  • DAUGHTERS.
  • 00:01:18.200 --> 00:01:21.200
  • SO I WAS TRANSITIONING INTO A
  • 00:01:21.200 --> 00:01:22.110
  • NEW APARTMENT.
  • 00:01:22.110 --> 00:01:23.230
  • IN THE MIDDLE OF THE MOVE I
  • 00:01:23.230 --> 00:01:24.260
  • BROKE MY ANKLE.
  • 00:01:24.260 --> 00:01:27.010
  • I WAS OUT OF WORK FOR THREE
  • 00:01:27.010 --> 00:01:27.210
  • MONTHS.
  • 00:01:27.210 --> 00:01:29.270
  • BECAUSE AT THE TIME I WAS A
  • 00:01:29.270 --> 00:01:31.060
  • SERVER.
  • 00:01:31.060 --> 00:01:31.290
  • IT WAS JUST IMPOSSIBLE.
  • 00:01:31.290 --> 00:01:32.250
  • I WAS ON CRUTCHES.
  • 00:01:32.250 --> 00:01:34.100
  • AND I WENT BACK TO WORK EVEN
  • 00:01:34.100 --> 00:01:35.140
  • WHEN I WAS PREGNANT, I WAS
  • 00:01:35.140 --> 00:01:36.190
  • WORKING HIM BUT I HAD A LOT OF
  • 00:01:36.190 --> 00:01:38.040
  • COMPLICATIONS WITH MY PREGNANCY.
  • 00:01:38.040 --> 00:01:40.120
  • SO I ENDED UP BEING PULLED OUT
  • 00:01:40.120 --> 00:01:41.080
  • OF WORK AGAIN, SO I DIDN'T HAVE
  • 00:01:41.080 --> 00:01:43.050
  • A JOB.
  • 00:01:43.050 --> 00:01:44.200
  • SO IN THAT STRUGGLE, WE WERE
  • 00:01:44.200 --> 00:01:46.110
  • GETTING BEHIND ON OUR RENT,
  • 00:01:46.180 --> 00:01:49.180
  • GETTING BEHIND ON BILLS, IT
  • 00:01:49.180 --> 00:01:50.210
  • PILED UP AND PILED UP.
  • 00:01:50.210 --> 00:01:53.190
  • AND EVENTUALLY WE GOT EVICTED
  • 00:01:53.190 --> 00:01:55.000
  • FROM OUR APARTMENT.
  • 00:01:55.000 --> 00:01:57.070
  • MY GIRLS WENT AND LIVED WITH
  • 00:01:57.070 --> 00:01:58.090
  • THEIR DAD.
  • 00:01:58.090 --> 00:02:00.070
  • I HAD NO WHERE TO GO.
  • 00:02:00.070 --> 00:02:02.000
  • SO MY FAMILY IS ALL IN OTHER
  • 00:02:02.000 --> 00:02:02.240
  • STATES.
  • 00:02:03.040 --> 00:02:06.040

  • ANYTHING, SICKNESS, A BULLY, A

  • COMES AGAINST HER CHILD.
  • 00:02:24.190 --> 00:02:26.040
  • BUT WHEN SHE HAS PUT HER BABIES
  • 00:02:26.040 --> 00:02:28.230
  • TO BED HUNGRY, WHICH IS A WAY OF
  • 00:02:28.230 --> 00:02:31.020
  • LIFE FOR MORE THAN 16 MILLION
  • 00:02:31.020 --> 00:02:32.240
  • CHILDREN RIGHT HERE IN AMERICA,
  • 00:02:32.240 --> 00:02:35.210
  • WELL, THEN, THAT MAMA BEAR MUST
  • 00:02:35.210 --> 00:02:36.200
  • CHOOSE BETWEEN RENT AND
  • 00:02:36.200 --> 00:02:39.070
  • GROCERIES, THE SHELTER OF HER
  • 00:02:39.070 --> 00:02:40.130

  • THIS DAY, PROBABLY HAS BEEN THE
  • 00:02:45.280 --> 00:02:48.060
  • HARDEST DECISION I'VE EVER HAD
  • 00:02:48.060 --> 00:02:49.210
  • TO MAKE BECAUSE I FEEL LIKE I
  • 00:02:49.210 --> 00:02:51.110
  • FAILED THEM.
  • 00:02:51.110 --> 00:02:52.210
  • I FELT LIKE I COULD HAVE DONE
  • 00:02:52.210 --> 00:02:54.000
  • BETTER, I COULD HAVE DONE
  • 00:02:54.000 --> 00:02:55.030
  • SOMETHING DIFFERENT.
  • 00:02:55.180 --> 00:02:58.180
  • THERE WAS A LOT OF, WELL, YOU
  • 00:02:58.180 --> 00:02:59.140
  • KNOW, IF I WOULD NOT HAVE MADE
  • 00:02:59.140 --> 00:03:00.250
  • THIS MISTAKE, IF I DID THIS
  • 00:03:00.250 --> 00:03:01.200
  • INSTEAD,
  • 00:03:01.200 --> 00:03:02.100
  • THEY WOULD NOT BE IN THIS
  • 00:03:02.100 --> 00:03:04.140
  • POSITION WHERE THEY ALL HAVE TO
  • 00:03:04.140 --> 00:03:05.140
  • BE SEPARATED.
  • 00:03:05.140 --> 00:03:06.170
  • AND SEPARATING THEM FROM THEIR
  • 00:03:06.170 --> 00:03:08.090
  • BROTHER AS WELL, BECAUSE HE
  • 00:03:08.090 --> 00:03:09.130
  • COULDN'T GO WITH THEM.
  • 00:03:09.130 --> 00:03:11.130
  • IT JUST TORE UP THE WHOLE
  • 00:03:11.130 --> 00:03:12.110
  • FAMILY.
  • 00:03:12.140 --> 00:03:15.140
  • SO, IN THAT MOMENT, AND THEY
  • 00:03:15.140 --> 00:03:17.010
  • WHETHER GONE LIKE THREE OR FOUR
  • 00:03:17.010 --> 00:03:18.280
  • MONTHS.
  • 00:03:18.280 --> 00:03:21.050
  • WHICH MAYBE DOES NOT SEEM LIKE A
  • 00:03:21.050 --> 00:03:22.070
  • WHOLE LOT OF TIME, BUT FOR US IT
  • 00:03:22.070 --> 00:03:24.080
  • WAS.
  • 00:03:24.080 --> 00:03:25.050
  • IT WAS REALLY DIFFICULT TO LET
  • 00:03:26.080 --> 00:03:29.080
  • THEM GO.
  • 00:03:29.080 --> 00:03:31.060

  • HOMELESS EACH YEAR HERE IN
  • 00:03:38.270 --> 00:03:40.010
  • AMERICA.
  • 00:03:40.010 --> 00:03:42.120
  • NOW THIS HISTORIC HIGH

  • REPRESENTS ONE IN EVERY 30
  • 00:03:43.210 --> 00:03:44.200
  • CHILDREN IN THE UNITED STATES,
  • 00:03:44.200 --> 00:03:46.280
  • AN ESTIMATED 1 MILLION RENTER
  • 00:03:46.280 --> 00:03:48.270
  • AND HOMEOWNER HOUSEHOLDS SPEND
  • 00:03:48.270 --> 00:03:50.160
  • OVER 50 PERCENT OF THEIR ANNUAL
  • 00:03:50.290 --> 00:03:53.290
  • INCOME JUST FOR HOUSING.
  • 00:03:53.290 --> 00:03:56.060
  • A FAMILY WITH ONE FULL TIME
  • 00:03:56.060 --> 00:03:58.040
  • WORKER EARNING THE MINIMUM WAGE
  • 00:03:58.040 --> 00:04:00.120
  • DOES NOT EARN ENOUGH TO AFFORD
  • 00:04:00.120 --> 00:04:02.020
  • THE RENT FOR A TWO BEDROOM
  • 00:04:02.020 --> 00:04:03.220

  • UNITED STATES.
  • 00:04:04.270 --> 00:04:07.200
  • SO THE BALANCE BETWEEN REMAINING
  • 00:04:07.200 --> 00:04:10.030
  • IN SAFE AFFORDABLE HOUSING AND
  • 00:04:10.030 --> 00:04:11.030
  • BECOMING HOMELESS IS EASILY
  • 00:04:11.030 --> 00:04:13.260

  • - JONATHAN: WE HAVE AN
  • 00:04:20.240 --> 00:04:21.220
  • AFFORDABILITY CRISIS IN THE
  • 00:04:21.220 --> 00:04:23.100
  • UNITED STATES NOW.
  • 00:04:23.100 --> 00:04:25.290
  • ABOUT ONE IN FOUR HOUSEHOLDS ARE
  • 00:04:25.290 --> 00:04:28.260
  • COST BURDENED IN OUR SOCIETY.
  • 00:04:28.260 --> 00:04:30.030
  • MEANING THEY ARE PAYING.
  • 00:04:30.030 --> 00:04:31.230
  • MORE THAN 30 PERCENT OF THEIR
  • 00:04:31.230 --> 00:04:32.260
  • INCOME ON EITHER RENT OR
  • 00:04:32.260 --> 00:04:34.140
  • MORTGAGE.
  • 00:04:34.140 --> 00:04:36.110
  • HOME OWNERSHIP HAS MAYBE NEVER
  • 00:04:36.110 --> 00:04:37.170
  • BEEN LESS ACCESSIBLE FOR LOW AND
  • 00:04:37.170 --> 00:04:38.270
  • MODERATE INCOME FAMILIES IN TERM
  • 00:04:38.270 --> 00:04:40.150
  • OF ACCESS TO MORTGAGE AND THE
  • 00:04:40.150 --> 00:04:42.240
  • COST OF HOUSING HAVING RISEN SO
  • 00:04:42.240 --> 00:04:44.120
  • MUCH FASTER THAN INCOMES OVER
  • 00:04:44.120 --> 00:04:45.240
  • THE LAST DECADE.
  • 00:04:45.240 --> 00:04:48.060
  • SO, FROM ANY LENS WE HAVE A
  • 00:04:48.060 --> 00:04:49.120
  • SERIOUS AFFORDABILITY CHALLENGE
  • 00:04:49.120 --> 00:04:51.020
  • IN HOUSING IN THE UNITED STATES.
  • 00:04:51.020 --> 00:04:53.080
  • - CANDY: WE ABSOLUTELY HAVE A
  • 00:04:53.080 --> 00:04:54.100
  • CRISIS.
  • 00:04:54.100 --> 00:04:55.260
  • THERE'S NOT NEARLY ENOUGH
  • 00:04:55.260 --> 00:04:58.250
  • LOW-INCOME HOUSING, DWELLINGS
  • 00:04:58.250 --> 00:05:00.050
  • FOR THE PEOPLE OF THE
  • 00:05:00.050 --> 00:05:02.040
  • UNITED STATES WHO ARE LOWER
  • 00:05:02.040 --> 00:05:03.060
  • INCOME FAMILIES.
  • 00:05:03.060 --> 00:05:06.020
  • AND SO, I THINK THAT WE HAVE A
  • 00:05:06.020 --> 00:05:07.210
  • CRISIS BECAUSE I SEE IT ON A
  • 00:05:07.210 --> 00:05:10.090
  • LOCAL LEVEL WITH FAMILIES LIVING
  • 00:05:10.090 --> 00:05:11.060
  • IN CARS AND LIVING IN SHELTERS.
  • 00:05:11.140 --> 00:05:14.140
  • STATISTICS SAY THAT MOST
  • 00:05:14.140 --> 00:05:17.090
  • FAMILIES ARE TWO MONTHS AWAY
  • 00:05:17.090 --> 00:05:18.160
  • FROM HOMELESSNESS BECAUSE THAT
  • 00:05:18.190 --> 00:05:21.190
  • WOULD BE YOUR EVICTION NOTICE
  • 00:05:21.190 --> 00:05:23.080
  • TIME FROM TIME OF JOBLESSNESS
  • 00:05:23.080 --> 00:05:26.000
  • AND MOST PEOPLE DO NOT HAVE AN
  • 00:05:26.000 --> 00:05:27.130
  • EMERGENCY FUND OR A SAVINGS.
  • 00:05:27.130 --> 00:05:30.000
  • SO IF THE JOB IS LOST OR THE
  • 00:05:30.000 --> 00:05:31.220
  • INCOME IS LOST, THEN THERE IS A
  • 00:05:31.220 --> 00:05:33.280
  • TWO MONTH PERIOD, LIKE 60,
  • 00:05:33.280 --> 00:05:36.000
  • POSSIBLY 90 DAYS A FAMILY CAN GO
  • 00:05:36.050 --> 00:05:39.050
  • FROM LIVING INDOORS TO LIVING IN
  • 00:05:39.050 --> 00:05:42.040
  • A CAR OR WITH FAMILY MEMBERS OR
  • 00:05:42.040 --> 00:05:44.020
  • HOTEL.
  • 00:05:44.020 --> 00:05:45.130
  • AND LOSE THEIR DWELLING.
  • 00:05:45.130 --> 00:05:48.050
  • - JONATHAN: THIS IS SUCH A
  • 00:05:48.050 --> 00:05:48.280
  • COMPLEX PROBLEM.
  • 00:05:48.280 --> 00:05:51.220
  • IF IT WERE EASY, PRESUMABLY
  • 00:05:51.220 --> 00:05:52.180
  • COMMUNITIES WOULD HAVE SOLVED IT
  • 00:05:52.180 --> 00:05:53.130
  • ALREADY.
  • 00:05:53.130 --> 00:05:54.220
  • HOUSING IS EXPENSIVE.
  • 00:05:54.220 --> 00:05:55.100
  • IT IS COMPLICATED.
  • 00:05:55.100 --> 00:05:56.170
  • LAND USE BY DEFINITION POLITICAL
  • 00:05:56.170 --> 00:05:58.010
  • AND COMPLEX AS WELL.
  • 00:05:58.010 --> 00:05:59.210
  • SO, WE BELIEVE TO SOLVE IT WE'VE
  • 00:05:59.210 --> 00:06:01.150
  • REALLY GOT TO PULL ALL THE
  • 00:06:01.150 --> 00:06:02.130
  • DECISION MAKERS TOGETHER TO
  • 00:06:02.130 --> 00:06:03.160
  • REALLY THINK THROUGH WHAT ARE
  • 00:06:03.160 --> 00:06:06.010
  • SUSTAINABLE SOLUTIONS.
  • 00:06:06.010 --> 00:06:06.230
  • WE THINK WE NEED A WHOLE RANGE.
  • 00:06:06.230 --> 00:06:08.250
  • IF YOU THINK ABOUT THE HOUSING
  • 00:06:08.250 --> 00:06:10.170
  • CONTINUUM HABITAT FOR HUMANITY
  • 00:06:10.170 --> 00:06:12.050
  • FOCUSES ON HOMEOWNERSHIP.
  • 00:06:12.050 --> 00:06:13.070
  • AND WE THINK THAT IS AN
  • 00:06:13.070 --> 00:06:14.200
  • IMPORTANT PIECE OF THE SOLUTION,
  • 00:06:14.200 --> 00:06:15.190
  • BUT WE ALSO NEED AFFORDABLE
  • 00:06:15.190 --> 00:06:16.220
  • RENTAL HOUSING.
  • 00:06:16.220 --> 00:06:17.090
  • WE ALSO NEED SUPPORTIVE HOUSING.
  • 00:06:17.090 --> 00:06:18.160
  • WE NEED THE WHOLE MIX.
  • 00:06:18.160 --> 00:06:19.210
  • BUT WE HAVE TO BE CREATIVE ABOUT
  • 00:06:19.210 --> 00:06:21.190
  • THAT AND I THINK IT TAKES A
  • 00:06:21.190 --> 00:06:22.270
  • THOUGHTFUL MULTI SECTOR APPROACH
  • 00:06:22.270 --> 00:06:24.220
  • WHERE THE CITY IS SITTING DOWN
  • 00:06:24.220 --> 00:06:26.000
  • WITH THE DEVELOPERS AND THE

  • COMMUNITY GROUPS AND CIVIL
  • 00:06:29.070 --> 00:06:30.120
  • SOCIETY AND REALLY THINKING
  • 00:06:30.120 --> 00:06:31.120
  • HOLISTICALLY ABOUT HOW WE ATTACK
  • 00:06:31.120 --> 00:06:32.130
  • THE CHALLENGE.
  • 00:06:32.130 --> 00:06:34.110
  • - BEN CARSON: IT IS VERY
  • 00:06:34.110 --> 00:06:35.260
  • DIFFICULT TO SOAR IN THIS
  • 00:06:35.260 --> 00:06:37.160
  • SOCIETY IF YOU DON'T HAVE A SAFE

  • HELLO, EVERYONE.
  • 00:06:52.100 --> 00:06:54.010
  • I'M DELIGHTED TO BE HERE BECAUSE
  • 00:06:55.040 --> 00:06:58.040
  • I WANTED TO COME FACE-TO-FACE
  • 00:06:58.040 --> 00:07:00.180
  • WITH SOME OF THE THINGS THAT
  • 00:07:00.180 --> 00:07:02.180
  • WERE BEING DONE DIRECTLY BY
  • 00:07:02.180 --> 00:07:03.180
  • COMMUNITIES THAT ARE
  • 00:07:03.180 --> 00:07:04.240
  • EXPERIENCING SUCCESS AND TAKING
  • 00:07:04.240 --> 00:07:06.260
  • CARE OF SOME OF THE LESS
  • 00:07:06.260 --> 00:07:08.240
  • FORTUNATE MEMBERS OF OUR
  • 00:07:08.240 --> 00:07:09.120
  • SOCIETY.
  • 00:07:09.120 --> 00:07:11.130
  • THERE IS NOTHING LIKE BEING ABLE
  • 00:07:11.130 --> 00:07:12.200
  • TO ENGAGE WITH THOSE PEOPLE, TO
  • 00:07:12.200 --> 00:07:14.210
  • TALK WITH THEM, TO FIND OUT WHAT
  • 00:07:14.210 --> 00:07:16.010
  • THEIR TRIUMPHS WERE, WHAT THEIR
  • 00:07:16.010 --> 00:07:18.110
  • DIFFICULTIES WERE SO WE CAN
  • 00:07:18.110 --> 00:07:20.190
  • UTILIZE THAT TO EMPOWER OTHER
  • 00:07:20.190 --> 00:07:22.190
  • COMMUNITIES AROUND THE COUNTRY.
  • 00:07:23.040 --> 00:07:26.040
  • - PASTOR JAMES: TO ME, ONE OF
  • 00:07:26.040 --> 00:07:27.000
  • THE BEST SOLUTIONS FOR BIG
  • 00:07:27.000 --> 00:07:27.270
  • PROBLEMS IS FOR EVERYBODY TO
  • 00:07:27.270 --> 00:07:29.040
  • TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE
  • 00:07:29.040 --> 00:07:32.040
  • PIECE THEY MIGHT PLAY IN IT.
  • 00:07:32.040 --> 00:07:33.130
  • FROM THE ST. JAMES COMMUNITY,
  • 00:07:33.130 --> 00:07:34.280
  • RIGHT NOW IN THIS MOMENT WE ARE
  • 00:07:34.280 --> 00:07:37.150
  • MAKING THE DIFFERENCE WITH 92
  • 00:07:37.150 --> 00:07:39.250
  • AFFORDABLE UNITS RIGHT NEXT DOOR
  • 00:07:39.290 --> 00:07:42.290
  • TO US THAT WE HAVE HELPED IN A
  • 00:07:42.290 --> 00:07:43.280
  • PARTNERSHIP TO MAKE A
  • 00:07:43.280 --> 00:07:45.100
  • DIFFERENCE.
  • 00:07:45.100 --> 00:07:47.150
  • BUT WE HAD THIS BUILDING THAT
  • 00:07:47.150 --> 00:07:48.270
  • WAS BUILT WITH A DESIGN FOR
  • 00:07:48.270 --> 00:07:50.250
  • MINISTRY THAT WAS IMAGINED IN
  • 00:07:50.250 --> 00:07:53.220
  • THE 1950'S.
  • 00:07:53.220 --> 00:07:55.210
  • BUT IT IS NOT ABOUT JUST
  • 00:07:55.210 --> 00:07:56.230
  • ENGAGING PEOPLE IN CHURCH, IT IS
  • 00:07:56.230 --> 00:07:58.180
  • ABOUT REACHING THE NEEDS OF
  • 00:07:58.180 --> 00:08:00.110
  • PEOPLE WHERE THEY ARE SO THAT IF
  • 00:08:00.110 --> 00:08:03.040
  • WE ALL LEARN AND KNOW THAT WE
  • 00:08:03.040 --> 00:08:05.070
  • ARE LOVED AND CONNECTED, THAT WE
  • 00:08:05.070 --> 00:08:06.190
  • CAN GROW BEYOND.
  • 00:08:06.190 --> 00:08:08.250
  • SO WE BEGAN TO PRAY ABOUT WHAT
  • 00:08:08.250 --> 00:08:10.090
  • WE MIGHT DO, HOW WE MIGHT
  • 00:08:10.090 --> 00:08:11.210
  • LEVERAGE WHAT WE HAD WITH 12.000
  • 00:08:11.260 --> 00:08:14.260
  • SQUARE FEET, AND THE ROUGHLY TWO
  • 00:08:14.260 --> 00:08:16.120
  • PLUS ACRES OF LAND THAT WE HAD.
  • 00:08:17.050 --> 00:08:20.050
  • AND WE DETERMINED THAT WE WOULD
  • 00:08:20.050 --> 00:08:23.010
  • BE BETTER OFF WITH A SMALLER
  • 00:08:23.010 --> 00:08:24.030
  • FOOTPRINT SPACE THAT WAS MORE
  • 00:08:24.030 --> 00:08:26.050
  • ECOLOGICALLY NEUTRAL AND
  • 00:08:26.050 --> 00:08:27.250
  • FRIENDLY TO THE ENVIRONMENT THAT
  • 00:08:27.250 --> 00:08:29.210
  • WOULD GET MORE USE.
  • 00:08:29.210 --> 00:08:31.230
  • AND IT WAS VERY CLEAR TO US FROM
  • 00:08:31.230 --> 00:08:33.020
  • THE BEGINNING THAT WE WERE NOT
  • 00:08:33.020 --> 00:08:33.270
  • WILLING TO JUST SELL TO ANY
  • 00:08:33.270 --> 00:08:35.290
  • DEVELOPER OR WE AND NOT WANT
  • 00:08:35.290 --> 00:08:37.170
  • JUST HOUSES TO BE WHERE WE HAD
  • 00:08:37.170 --> 00:08:39.170
  • PREVIOUSLY BEEN, WE WANTED TO DO
  • 00:08:39.170 --> 00:08:41.080
  • SOMETHING THAT COULD CHANGE THE
  • 00:08:41.080 --> 00:08:42.090
  • FACE OF OUR COMMUNITY.
  • 00:08:42.090 --> 00:08:45.010
  • THE DEVELOPER A.H.C.
  • 00:08:45.010 --> 00:08:47.060
  • INCORPORATED WORKED WITH OUR
  • 00:08:47.060 --> 00:08:48.250
  • COMMUNITY.
  • 00:08:48.250 --> 00:08:50.140
  • AND IN THE END, I WAS AMAZED,
  • 00:08:50.140 --> 00:08:51.130
  • EVEN THE MOCKUPS DIDN'T DO
  • 00:08:51.130 --> 00:08:52.250
  • JUSTICE TO HOW BEAUTIFUL THE
  • 00:08:52.250 --> 00:08:53.220
  • AFFORDABLE HOUSING OF A.H.C.,
  • 00:08:53.220 --> 00:08:56.140
  • ST. JAMES PLAZA REALLY TURNED
  • 00:08:56.140 --> 00:08:57.110
  • OUT TO BE.
  • 00:08:57.110 --> 00:08:58.250
  • - Ben: WOW!

  • BUILDING.
  • 00:09:07.050 --> 00:09:08.090
  • I THINK ONE OF THE CONCERNS
  • 00:09:08.090 --> 00:09:09.170
  • COMMUNITIES HAVE IS WHAT IS IT
  • 00:09:09.170 --> 00:09:11.200
  • GOING TO LOOK LIKE WHEN IT IS
  • 00:09:11.200 --> 00:09:12.240
  • FINISHED.

  • OUR CHURCH BUILDING USED TO BE
  • 00:09:19.010 --> 00:09:19.280

  • 00:09:19.280 --> 00:09:21.280

  • THIS IS IN WALKING DISTANCE TO A
  • 00:09:28.050 --> 00:09:30.140
  • LOT OF AMENITIES, TOO, ISN'T IT?
  • 00:09:30.140 --> 00:09:33.050
  • - James: IT IS.
  • 00:09:33.050 --> 00:09:35.010
  • AND IT IS RIGHT ON THE BUS
  • 00:09:35.010 --> 00:09:35.260
  • ROUTE.
  • 00:09:35.260 --> 00:09:36.240

  • AND IT IS NOT JUST GIVING THEM
  • 00:10:45.190 --> 00:10:47.280
  • ASSISTANCE FOR RENT, IT IS
  • 00:10:47.280 --> 00:10:50.070
  • PROVIDING AN OPPORTUNITY FOR

  • PRETTY GENEROUS.
  • 00:11:48.060 --> 00:11:50.050
  • WE HAD AN OPPORTUNITY TO HEAR
  • 00:11:50.050 --> 00:11:51.110
  • FROM SO MANY PEOPLE WHO ARE
  • 00:11:51.110 --> 00:11:54.010

  • INTO ACTION.
  • 00:11:55.010 --> 00:11:57.100
  • NOT ONLY IN TERMS OF CREATING
  • 00:11:57.100 --> 00:11:58.160
  • AFFORDABLE HOUSING, WHICH IS A
  • 00:11:58.160 --> 00:12:00.210
  • VERY HEAVY LIFT IN A LOT OF
  • 00:12:00.210 --> 00:12:03.090
  • PLACES AND REQUIRES COOPERATION
  • 00:12:03.090 --> 00:12:05.130
  • FROM THE CITY, THE MAYOR, THE
  • 00:12:05.240 --> 00:12:08.240
  • CITY COUNCIL, BUT THE REAL KEY
  • 00:12:08.240 --> 00:12:10.040
  • HERE IS TO FIGHT THEIR WAY
  • 00:12:10.040 --> 00:12:11.230
  • THROUGH ALL OF THAT, TO WORK
  • 00:12:11.230 --> 00:12:13.020
  • WITH THE CITY TO, WORK WITH ALL
  • 00:12:13.020 --> 00:12:14.220
  • THE LOCAL OFFICIALS, TO BE ABLE
  • 00:12:14.220 --> 00:12:16.200
  • TO GET THE MONEY, TO BE ABLE TO
  • 00:12:16.200 --> 00:12:18.230
  • PUT ALL THIS TOGETHER
  • 00:12:18.230 --> 00:12:20.050
  • EFFECTIVELY AND MAKE IT WORK.
  • 00:12:20.050 --> 00:12:22.170
  • IT REQUIRES A LOT OF TIME AND
  • 00:12:22.170 --> 00:12:23.210
  • EFFORT.
  • 00:12:23.210 --> 00:12:25.130
  • BUT LOOK AT THE IMPACT, THAT IS
  • 00:12:25.130 --> 00:12:26.060
  • THE KEY.

  • MUSIC
  • 00:12:31.180 --> 00:12:34.180
  • - KELLY: TOO OFTEN WE ASSUME
  • 00:12:34.180 --> 00:12:35.220
  • THAT HOMELESS PEOPLE ARE ADDICTS
  • 00:12:35.220 --> 00:12:37.260
  • OR SUFFER FROM MENTAL ILLNESS,
  • 00:12:37.260 --> 00:12:40.090
  • HOWEVER, WHEN A FAMILY IS JUST
  • 00:12:40.090 --> 00:12:42.190
  • SEVERAL PAYCHECKS AWAY FROM
  • 00:12:42.190 --> 00:12:44.130
  • BEING FORCED OUT OF THEIR HOME,
  • 00:12:44.130 --> 00:12:46.220
  • LIVING ON THE STREET CAN QUICKLY
  • 00:12:46.220 --> 00:12:48.100
  • BECOME A STARK REALITY.
  • 00:12:48.100 --> 00:12:50.180
  • THE FACT IS, THERE ARE MANY
  • 00:12:50.180 --> 00:12:52.060
  • PATHS LEADING TO HOMELESSNESS.
  • 00:12:52.140 --> 00:12:55.140
  • IT COULD BE A TRAUMATIC EVENT,
  • 00:12:55.140 --> 00:12:57.170
  • SUCH AS A HOUSE FIRE OR JOB
  • 00:12:57.170 --> 00:12:58.190
  • LOSS.
  • 00:12:58.190 --> 00:13:00.070
  • A RELATIONAL CRISIS LIKE
  • 00:13:00.070 --> 00:13:02.000
  • DIVORCE, DOMESTIC VIOLENCE OR A
  • 00:13:02.000 --> 00:13:04.060
  • DEATH IN THE FAMILY, OR IT MIGHT
  • 00:13:04.060 --> 00:13:06.220
  • BE A HEALTH PROBLEM THAT RIPS A
  • 00:13:06.220 --> 00:13:09.130
  • PERSON OR FAMILY AWAY FROM THEIR
  • 00:13:09.130 --> 00:13:11.040
  • HOME SECURITY.
  • 00:13:11.040 --> 00:13:12.180
  • THE SLIPPERY SLOPE TO
  • 00:13:12.180 --> 00:13:14.100
  • HOMELESSNESS CAN BE IMMEDIATE
  • 00:13:14.100 --> 00:13:16.120
  • AND IT CAN BE BRUTAL.
  • 00:13:16.120 --> 00:13:18.220
  • AND THE WAY BACK TO CIVILITY IS
  • 00:13:18.220 --> 00:13:20.030
  • FAR MORE DIFFICULT.
  • 00:13:20.030 --> 00:13:21.280
  • YOU SEE IT TAKES A HELPING HAND
  • 00:13:21.280 --> 00:13:23.140
  • TO REACH OUT.
  • 00:13:23.140 --> 00:13:26.140
  • MUSIC
  • 00:13:26.260 --> 00:13:29.260
  • (SOUND OF TOOLS).
  • 00:13:32.200 --> 00:13:35.200
  • - JONATHAN: SO THE BASIC MODEL
  • 00:13:35.200 --> 00:13:36.170
  • OF HABITAT FOR HUMANITY HAS
  • 00:13:36.170 --> 00:13:37.140
  • ALWAYS BEEN PARTNERSHIP HOUSING.
  • 00:13:37.140 --> 00:13:39.180
  • SO FROM THE VERY BEGINNING IT IS
  • 00:13:39.180 --> 00:13:41.040
  • THE IDEA THAT EVERYONE HAS
  • 00:13:41.040 --> 00:13:42.180
  • SOMETHING TO GIVE AND EVERYONE
  • 00:13:42.180 --> 00:13:43.270
  • HAS SOMETHING TO GAIN BY COMING
  • 00:13:43.270 --> 00:13:45.010
  • TOGETHER TO BUILD.
  • 00:13:45.010 --> 00:13:46.070
  • THE THREE CRITERIA FOR BEING A
  • 00:13:46.070 --> 00:13:48.010
  • HABITAT HOME BUYER, FIRST YOU
  • 00:13:48.010 --> 00:13:49.090
  • HAVE TO BE LOW INCOME, AND SOME
  • 00:13:49.090 --> 00:13:50.170
  • IN THE MARKET WOULD NOT SERVE,
  • 00:13:50.170 --> 00:13:52.260
  • THE BANKS WOULD NEVER GIVE A
  • 00:13:52.260 --> 00:13:54.050
  • MORTGAGE TO.
  • 00:13:54.050 --> 00:13:55.020
  • SECOND, YOU HAVE TO BE WILLING
  • 00:13:55.020 --> 00:13:55.280
  • TO PARTNER.
  • 00:13:55.280 --> 00:13:56.200
  • FOR US IT MEANS YOU LITERALLY
  • 00:13:56.200 --> 00:13:58.210
  • PUT IN HUNDREDS OF HOUR OF WHAT
  • 00:13:58.210 --> 00:13:59.230
  • WE CALL SWEAT EQUITY, HELPING
  • 00:13:59.230 --> 00:14:00.260
  • BUILD YOUR HOME AND YOUR
  • 00:14:00.260 --> 00:14:02.070
  • NEIGHBORS HOMES AND TAKING
  • 00:14:02.070 --> 00:14:03.110
  • CLASSES IN FINANCIAL LITERACY
  • 00:14:03.110 --> 00:14:04.260
  • AND HOME MAINTENANCE SO THAT YOU
  • 00:14:04.260 --> 00:14:06.130
  • ARE REALLY WELL PREPARED.
  • 00:14:06.130 --> 00:14:08.040
  • AND THEN THIRD, YOU HAVE TO
  • 00:14:08.040 --> 00:14:10.050
  • DEMONSTRATE THE ABILITY TO PAY
  • 00:14:10.050 --> 00:14:11.070
  • BACK AN AFFORDABLE MORTGAGE AND
  • 00:14:11.070 --> 00:14:11.290
  • WE GIVE A VERY LOW COST MORTGAGE
  • 00:14:11.290 --> 00:14:12.260
  • TO THE FAMILIES, BUT IT IS
  • 00:14:12.260 --> 00:14:13.280
  • CRITICAL THEY PAY BACK.
  • 00:14:13.280 --> 00:14:15.160
  • IT IS A HAND UP NOT A HANDOUT.
  • 00:14:15.160 --> 00:14:17.220
  • WE ALWAYS REVOLVE THOSE PAYMENTS
  • 00:14:17.220 --> 00:14:19.160
  • IN THE SAME COMMUNITY, SO WHEN A
  • 00:14:19.160 --> 00:14:20.250
  • FAMILY KNOWS THAT THEY ARE
  • 00:14:20.250 --> 00:14:22.080
  • PAYING THEIR MORTGAGE, THEY ARE
  • 00:14:22.080 --> 00:14:23.250
  • HELPING THE NEXT FAMILY HAVE
  • 00:14:23.250 --> 00:14:25.160
  • THEIR OPPORTUNITY TO BE ABLE TO
  • 00:14:25.160 --> 00:14:26.260
  • BECOME A HOME BUYER.
  • 00:14:26.260 --> 00:14:27.290
  • MUSIC

  • - KRUSHETTA: I'M KRUSHETTA.
  • 00:14:30.050 --> 00:14:31.140
  • I'M A MOTHER OF THREE.
  • 00:14:31.140 --> 00:14:32.280
  • SO I ACTUALLY APPLIED WITH THE
  • 00:14:32.280 --> 00:14:34.090
  • HABITAT.
  • 00:14:34.090 --> 00:14:35.180
  • SO ONCE I INQUIRED ABOUT IT I
  • 00:14:35.180 --> 00:14:37.090
  • WAS SELECTED WITH THIS PROGRAM.
  • 00:14:37.090 --> 00:14:39.250
  • IT TOOK LIKE A YEAR TO DO THE
  • 00:14:39.250 --> 00:14:41.100
  • PROCESS.
  • 00:14:41.100 --> 00:14:43.060
  • SO THE HOME THAT IS STANDING
  • 00:14:43.060 --> 00:14:44.180
  • BEHIND ME, IT WAS ACTUALLY AN
  • 00:14:44.180 --> 00:14:45.240
  • EMPTY LOT WITH A BIG TREE
  • 00:14:45.240 --> 00:14:47.060
  • STANDING IN THE FRONT OF IT AND
  • 00:14:47.060 --> 00:14:49.060
  • AS YOU CAN SEE, THERE IS NOT A
  • 00:14:49.090 --> 00:14:52.090
  • TREE THERE NOW, IT IS ACTUALLY A
  • 00:14:52.090 --> 00:14:54.220
  • HOME THAT IS BEHIND ME.
  • 00:14:54.220 --> 00:14:57.110
  • IT IS A WORK IN PROGRESS.
  • 00:14:57.110 --> 00:15:00.040
  • AND I CAN'T WAIT TO SIT BACK AND
  • 00:15:00.040 --> 00:15:02.070
  • RELAX.
  • 00:15:02.070 --> 00:15:03.130
  • - JEFF: THIS PARTICULAR
  • 00:15:03.130 --> 00:15:04.180
  • INDIVIDUAL IS GOING TO INVEST, I
  • 00:15:04.180 --> 00:15:06.050
  • THINK IT IS 250 SWEAT EQUITY
  • 00:15:06.050 --> 00:15:07.110
  • HOURS.
  • 00:15:07.110 --> 00:15:08.050
  • THEY ARE GOING TO TAKE A YEAR'S
  • 00:15:08.050 --> 00:15:09.120
  • WORTH OF COURSES LIKE THE ONE I
  • 00:15:09.120 --> 00:15:10.240
  • TEACH ON HOW TO MAINTAIN YOUR
  • 00:15:10.240 --> 00:15:12.010
  • HOUSE, AND BUDGETING AND
  • 00:15:12.010 --> 00:15:13.180
  • MORTGAGES.
  • 00:15:13.180 --> 00:15:14.120
  • AND SHE WILL BECOME AN EDUCATED
  • 00:15:14.200 --> 00:15:17.200
  • HOMEOWNER.
  • 00:15:17.200 --> 00:15:19.240
  • MY CAREER IS AS A TEACHER AND
  • 00:15:20.020 --> 00:15:23.020
  • ONE OF THE THINGS I BELIEVE
  • 00:15:23.020 --> 00:15:25.160
  • STRONGLY IN IS THE VALUE OF
  • 00:15:25.160 --> 00:15:27.230
  • EDUCATION IN UPLIFTING A FAMILY.
  • 00:15:27.230 --> 00:15:30.060
  • AND THE STABILITY OF CHILDREN IN
  • 00:15:30.060 --> 00:15:32.270
  • A SCHOOL DISTRICT IS REALLY
  • 00:15:32.270 --> 00:15:34.160
  • IMPORTANT.
  • 00:15:34.160 --> 00:15:35.160
  • SO PROVIDING THE HOUSE THAT A
  • 00:15:35.160 --> 00:15:37.090
  • FAMILY WILL LIVE IN AND THE
  • 00:15:37.090 --> 00:15:39.080
  • CHILDREN WILL GO TO THE SCHOOL,
  • 00:15:39.080 --> 00:15:40.140
  • I THINK MAKES AN ENORMOUS
  • 00:15:40.140 --> 00:15:41.280
  • DIFFERENCE FOR THAT PARTICULAR
  • 00:15:41.280 --> 00:15:43.040

  • PUTTING UP MY SHELVES.

  • WE ARE GOING TO CONTINUE TO

  • WHAT IS THE PROBLEM?

  • VETERAN AND COMING OUT IS HARD.
  • 00:19:58.150 --> 00:20:00.050
