Housing Our Workers (H.O.W.TM)

In early 2017 SRAR hosted a forum called "Housing Our Workers".    

The event was part of an overall plan to educate REALTORS® and the public, and to motivate them toward a plan of action. The Housing Our Workers Forum, was co-sponsored by the Valley Economic Alliance and BizFed Institute (The Los Angeles Business Federation).  

Two break-out sessions focused on Labor Partners, Social Benefits, Government Partners, Neighborhood Advocates, Public-Private Partnerships, and Traditional & Creative Financing. 

These sessions discussed three questions:  How did we get here?  How can my agency contribute to an increase in housing options?  and How can I be personally responsible for helping the cause? 

Below are the results:
