This summer we will be launching a year-long series of stories about housing in Racine. We will focus on evictions, homelessness, rents, home ownership and new construction. We also plan to work with the artistic community on this project to provide a multimedia experience.
Why is this series important? The Racine Unified School District has an entire department dedicated to helping children living in transitional situations. Housing is integral to the strength of Racine’s economic stability.
This means that they care for children who are:
- Staying in a shelter or transitional living program
- Sharing someone else’s home due to economic hardship or homelessness
- In a hotel or motel
- Living in a car, park, campground, or other inadequate accommodation
- Living without a parent or legal guardian
Funding for our housing project in Racine
Our goal this month is to raise $5,000 by April 30 to help fund our journalism projects. If this work is important to you, please become a paid subscriber today.
