Rally for Affordable Housing

July 11, 2018

More than 100 people, including members of the Meals on Wheels Central Texas team, gathered on the steps of City Hall recently to urge the Austin City Council to prioritize affordable housing in the upcoming November bond elections.

Austin Mayor Steve Adler, Mayor Pro-Tem Kathie Tovo, and Councilmembers Delia Garza, Pio Renteria, and Greg Casar attended the rally and spoke in favor of affordable housing bonds.

These types of bonds provide an important source of funding for our Home Repair Program, which transforms the lives of older adults and people with disabilities experiencing serious structural and accessibility issues with their homes. And, by completing these critical repairs, MOWCTX helps provide an affordable housing alternative for our vulnerable neighbors—their own cherished homes.
