As Rhode Island’s aging population continues to grow, addressing housing affordability is an urgent and complex challenge. Ensuring that older adults have access to affordable and suitable housing is not only a moral imperative but also a necessary investment in the well-being of our older adults and the overall health of our communities. By working together, policymakers, organizations, and communities can make progress in addressing this crucial issue and improving the quality of life for older adults in our state.
Annually, we turn to the HWRI Housing Fact Book as a valuable source to inform our thinking on the current state of Rhode Island’s housing crisis. This resource is a cornerstone for us at Age Friendly RI and the leaders shaping our state’s future. Learn more at https://www.housingworksri.org/
