The Need

Housing is one of the basic needs that every person strives to get and comes second after food.  It is imperative to note that a robust and diverse community with healthy economy must be able to provide safe and accessible housing for the residents despite the different income levels.  It is for this reason that the concept of affordable housing becomes an important aspect in the modern hard economic times.  It is the responsibility of an active community to ensure that they have policies that preserve and expand the amount of affordable housing in their regions.  Nevertheless, this is not the case as most low income and middle-income earners are finding it rough getting affordable housing (Ascentia.us). Most of these people are forced to travel for long distances in search of shelter or spend a substantial amount of their earnings to cater for the ever-escalating housing prices. This report will have an in-depth analysis of the housing problem in Denver and why it is essential to offer a solution to this crisis.

Objective

Our objective is building affordable housing complex for low-income earners in the county. Most people in the city are middle and low-income earners and will be the beneficiaries of the complex. The complex will also target single parents who finds it difficult catering for the skyrocketing rental prices. It is prudent to note that the complex will have several rental units that even the disabled in the city will enjoy decent housing.
