Many people are priced out of the housing market in Johnson County. A social worker or paramedic, for example, cannot afford to purchase an average-priced home in any city in Johnson County. Having a safe, affordable home should be accessible for all, not a privilege for a select few. Learn why the lack of affordable housing in Johnson County affects the entire community and why it's in our interest to provide more housing options in Johnson County.

Presenters:
• Valorie Carson, Community Planning Director, United Community Services of Johnson County
• Jennifer Creagar, Financial Care Program Director, United Methodist Church of the Resurrection
• Maury Thompson, Deputy Manager, Johnson County

Come at 8:30 a.m. to enjoy treats and coffee!
