This summer we will launch a year-long series of stories around housing in Racine. Our focus will be on evictions, homelessness, rents, homeownership, and new construction. We also plan on working with the art community on this project to provide a multi-media experience.
Why does this series matter? The Racine Unified School District has an entire department dedicated to helping children living in transient situations. Housing is integral to the strength of economic stability in Racine.
That means they deal with kids that are:
- Staying in a shelter or transitional living program
- Sharing the housing of others due to economic hardship or loss of housing
- In a hotel or motel
- Living in a car, park, campground or other inadequate accommodation
- Living without a parent or legal guardian
