Jan. 28: Texas Women's Foundation Presents Virtual Viewpoints: The Essentials - Housing

We are excited to present to you the next in our event series of Virtual Viewpoints that focuses on the four essentials to a woman and her family's economic security: child care, housing, health insurance and education. 

Housing is a major building block in the economic security of families. Access to stable and affordable housing and housing protections are not new problems, but they are more urgent now than ever.

Join us as we talk with community leaders in housing and family services about the challenges women – especially women of color – are facing, and what programs and services are providing critical support for families, and how you can play a part.

Join Texas Women's Foundation as we discuss the issue of housing stability with women and girls across Texas. There will be a panel of experts serving families in the housing industry who will speak about these issues and how we can work to create housing stability programs and policies that will help families statewide.
