Abstract

Few people doubt the fundamental importance of housing. It is, after all, where we live. It gives us shelter from the elements; thus, we want it to be decent, safe, and sanitary. We also want our housing to be affordable, giving us security against eviction and displacement. More fundamentally, housing gives us respite from the congress of social life. It is where we want to be nurtured and where we nurture our families. Without a home, we have no center, no stability.1
