As housing prices increase and wages don’t keep up, there is a deep need for innovation in housing. In this event, Bri will share innovative approaches to housing, including the intersection of housing and community. Event attendees will learn about creative pathways towards home ownership through opportunities like cooperatives, co-housing, co-buying, and renter equity, all of which elevate the greater good of our community.
