“Affordable housing is essential for meeting some of the most basic human needs, including shelter, safety, health, and stability. It is not only a matter of individual well-being but also a critical component of building strong, inclusive, and prosperous communities. Working for MidPen, I feel proud and privileged that I got an opportunity to make my contribution towards this greater goal.”
