Housing Links

It's my goal to have this page be of real service to those in need of help and/or information.
This page is essentially meant to work in tandem with both my Architects and Homeless Resource pages.
The Architects Links section has been included here, because a long-term solution for housing is vitally needed, as well as emergency stop-gap measures.
In many places around the globe, low-income housing is being destroyed and replaced with high-income housing, thus depriving many of affordable shelter.
These architectural links have all been chosen for resourcefulness and sense of innovation,as well as awareness of the environment and economical building materials.

Please feel free to contact me with suggestions, ideas and comments; (Email me with any helpful links, please)
also, please let me know if any links on this page are down, broken, or not working, thanks.
Please sign my Guestbook -I would love to hear from you!****Harmony****
