Last week D Magazine posted an article about the housing crisis in West Dallas (check it out here).
Of note in the statistics reported in the BC Workshop housing report, "The median sales price of recently constructed homes rose from $145,00 in 2011 to $522,000 in 2016."
The simple fact is it is becoming more and more difficult to live affordably in Dallas. As a result more and more people are being forced to South Dallas, where housing is more affordable.
This is one of many reasons that we are focusing our efforts of Making Poverty History in South Dallas. There is an urgent and tremendous need for us to, as we say in our mission statement, confront the spiritual needs of the “poor” and resolving the material realities that prevent them from flourishing.
