Voices Out Loud: Housing and Education


When we talk about supporting affordable housing, we're not talking about housing alone. There are several cross-sector benefits to investing in affordable housing including that of education. Join Dr. Marceline Catlett, Superintendent of Fredericksburg City Public Schools, and Melissa Wells, Assistant Professor of Education at the University of Mary Washington, as they define the link between affordable housing and education in Fredericksburg, Virginia.

Voices Out Loud, a video series by the National Housing Trust, features residents, staff, and owners of affordable housing communities nationwide. These videos share the true stories of those who live, work and manage these communities, and show the positive impact affordable housing not only has on one family but an entire community.
