The Affordable Housing Crisis

The Historic Triangle is currently in the midst of a housing crisis. Client concentration exponentially increased from 2010 to 2018, demonstrating the impact of the housing crisis and the need for Housing Partnerships’ aid and service. The average household income of clients in the Historic Triangle consistently hovers around $15,000 to $20,000, with the most recent U.S. Census showing the median household income falling around $50,000. Zillow displays the housing value index as exponentially increasing, with each county valuing around a median of $300K. The average household incomes of clients in the Historic Triangle cannot keep up with the dramatic increase seen in the housing value index. It is more important than ever for volunteers and donors to offer their aid. Together we have rehabilitated 2,537 homes over the years, and we project the needs of the Historic Triangle in 2019 to surpass the prior years.  The Housing Partnership is here to provide our neighbors with safe, warm, and dry homes.

Average Client Household Income 2010-2018

The graph above of Housing Partnership's client average household income in the Historic Triangle from 2010 to 2018 demonstrates how clients are not experiencing the necessary increase in household income to keep up with the dramatic increase in the housing value since 2012.

Note: Clientele has increased dramatically since 2010 (as seen in the GIF above) therefore less data is available in 2010 than in 2018.
