Affordable Housing Special
Food, water, shelter.
Those are the three basic necessities we’ve always been taught we need as humans in order to survive. In this special series on affordable housing, we’ll be taking a closer look at the last of those – shelter – and what it looks like in our home – the North State – to try to buy or rent shelter for yourself and family.
Through the reporting of NSPR’s News Team, you’ll hear about the current state of our region’s housing market, from people whose rent costs them most of what they bring home on their paycheck, from students who’ve struggled to find housing while they attend Chico State, from a once homeless veteran who now has a stable roof over her head, and from the wife of a farmworker who this holiday season had a place that she and her family could call their own.
