The Case for Investing in Affordable Housing: Danielle’s story

Congratulations to Danielle Toth, Peer Support Specialist at Avalon Housing!  The story of Danielle’s journey from homelessness towards a new home with her daughters is featured in the CHCDF’s 2017 report, A Place to Call Home:  The Case for Increased Federal Investments in Affordable Housing.  The CHCDF, or Campaign for Housing and Community Development Funding, is a coalition of organizations that advocate for federal housing and community development funding for low-income families and communities nationwide.  Through this report, Danielle’s story and many others will be shared with members of Congress this week.  The CHCDF will urge members of Congress to work together to prevent impending funding cuts for affordable housing and community development programs and ensure that these programs receive the highest allocation of funds possible. 

We’re proud to have Danielle as a staff member and are so grateful that she’s willing to share her story.
