THE NEXT GENERATION: A PANEL DISCUSSION

The Power of Affordable Homeownership Across Generations

On February 4th we had the pleasure of hosting a panel discussion with first time Habitat Greater San Francisco homeowners and young adults who grew up in Habitat homes, to reflect on the power of homeownership across generations. Many thanks again to the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative for their generous support.

On the panel we heard distinct perspectives on the impacts of children â€“ first from parents, who helped us understand how their goals for homeownership fit so strongly with their hopes and dreams of their children.  Next, the young adults who grew up in these homes gave their take on the power of affordable homeownership, reflecting on the difference it made to live in Habitat Homes on their education, career path, and overall well-being.  As one panelist put it, “Home is where your story begins.”
