2014 Affordable Housing Week

Thank you for making EBHO's 18th Annual Affordable Housing Week one of our best yet!  Between May 9 and 18, our 23+ great events showed 10 cities and well over 3,000 people that together we build so much more than housing: we are growing a movement that is built to last. From grand openings to art exhibitions, tours with hard hats and bike helmets, panels led by affordable housing residents and consumers, and not least of all, EBHO's SOLD OUT 30th Anniversary Celebration, the Week raised awareness, celebrated successes, and helped us strengthen our network for action!
