Promote home ownership and asset building rather than paying landlords with section 8 funding + fund
Section 8 housing is a great help for many with hardship though it is underfunded currently. Assisting with asset building and home ownership could allow greater freedom self-sufficiency and break the cycle of perpetual poverty, by providing a mortgage payment in place of a rent payment. Allowing people to live with a room mate on section 8 housing could also provide desired support while reducing overhead. With creative funding resources could go farther and do more for empowering people who want companionship and the transition into self-sufficiency.
