Health | How Housing Matters

Fostering Healthy People and Neighborhoods

Where someone lives affects both their physical and mental wellbeing.

THE BIG PICTURE
Nearly 9 million Americans live in extreme poverty, with poor quality housing, poor schools, poor job access and other factors significantly and negatively impacting their physical and mental health.
IMPACT OF VIOLENCE AND POLLUTANTS
There is a direct line from exposure to neighborhood violence to psychological consequences, as well as a clear line between neighborhood environmental pollutants and poor health.
LONG-TERM BENEFITS
Moving from a high-poverty to lower-poverty neighborhood leads to long-term improvements in adult physical health, mental health and well-being, despite not affecting economic self-sufficiency.
