Housing for Military Families in Our Community
We know that the military has a large influence in our community, especially when it comes to housing. Military families face unique challenges when finding housing, be it rental or homeownership. It also affects others that are looking for affordable housing. Come hear about the opportunities and challenges in our communities.
Join us on November 4th at 9am and enjoy a morning treat, cup of coffee or juice, and network with housing professionals, as we listen to engaging discussions on housing military families in our community.
