The guest speakers are Elaine Ostrowski, from the Community Foundation of Greater Greensboro; Andy Scott, from the City of Greensboro; Beth McKee-Huger, from the Greensboro Housing Coalition and members of the Cottage Grove community. The event is free and refreshments will be provided.
The “Housing Hangout” is an informal space in which community housing advocates, city officials, university researchers, students, and members of the public gather to discuss housing and community development issues. These informal talks disseminate information about on-going programs, the findings of housing-related studies, community events. They also focus on the development of strategic plans and partnerships for providing decent and affordable housing in the community.
