Good for Workers
Public service workers have low salaries, hard jobs and need housing in their communities.
Many teachers, food bank coordinators or child protective service workers make about 35k -50k a year and have some of the most challenging work and workloads. They have very little choice when it comes to affordable housing and frequently end up commuting to outer lying areas or live in unsafe or compromised living scenarios.
A Good Solution
"I really didn't want to move out of the city right away when our building was sold, and I love my job working with children and youths. Room for Good is a huge relief! If I get my own place out of town next year, I might still need a place in the city a few days a week, and my host said she'd be ok with that. What a lifesaver!"
