Yes In My Backyard

Because everyone deserves a safe, affordable, hopeful place to call home, and when that’s the case our entire community benefits.

Housing is so important because it is one of the factors that contribute to the health and resilience of people, and collectively the health and resilience of a community.

​This has always been the case, but today during COVID-19, it is more evident than ever.

We need to be able to talk about the factors that contribute to health and resiliency in a way that makes sense to our decision-makers and neighbours, ​so they can more easily understand how we can ​best take care of each other.

Many of these factors are impacted by policy choices.

So how do we build a healthy, resilient community?

It’s a puzzle with many pieces. ​No one holds all the pieces…but through working together the puzzle can be solved.

Which pieces of the puzzle are you holding?

In the last 30 years, scientists have discovered that environment has a huge impact on brain development and function. 

Stable, loving relationships, low stress, healthy food, and stable housing all lead to a better chance of lifelong physical and mental health and provide the building blocks of resilience.
