The national housing crisis is something congregations and faith-based groups often want to address, yet feel powerless to do so in the face of this daunting and confusing problem. Making Housing Happen clearly shows how churches are addressing the housing crisis from Los Angeles to New York City. The book's three parts motivate the reader to action. The first part, The Foundation, puts a face on the kind of people in need of affordable housing, provides a solid theological foundation for an affordable housing ministry, and an overview of U.S. housing policies. Part II, Tangible Structures, features housing development models, each demonstrating best practices and workable solutions illustrated by true stories. The last section of the book, Intangible Structures, discusses ways that people of faith have created affordable housing without actually building it. For example, by changing laws and designing new structures or new financial tools that have resulted in housing solutions.
