HOME: A PATHWAY TO HEALTH EQUITY THROUGH HOUSING

St. Petersburg, Fla. (September 27, 2018) – Today, the Foundation for a Healthy St. Petersburg released a new, in-depth report that explores how income, race, and an insufficient supply of housing at a variety of affordability levels are barriers to achieving a safe and healthy home for thousands of Pinellas County (FL) residents.

Collaborative Solutions, Inc. an Alabama-based national research and training firm that supports the need for stable housing, is pleased to play an integral role in the planning process and development of the report, Home: A Pathway to Health Equity through Housing [https://bit.ly/2QqpC8D]; which is a joint project developed with the Foundation for a Healthy St. Petersburg. 

Although Pinellas County (FL) is primary focus of this report, issues addressed and recommendations are expected to be applicable to other communities across the country.
