BuzzHouse: Social service programs provide positive financial impact on affordable housing communities

Baker Tilly's podcast series specifically for professionals in the multifamily housing industry

If a social service program saves even two residents per month, it would equate to $60,000 a year in savings. Social service programs give the tenant population the ability to enhance behaviors that drive value-based living, which can further advance the social and economic contributors to a community development and a tenant’s personal financial position.

In this episode, President/Executive Director of Rainbow Housing, Flynann Janisee, answers why social services are an important part of affordable housing, which areas need social service programs the most, and what developers should consider when thinking about implementing a social service program within their projects.
