Publishing on Single Parent’s Awareness Day, Mediaplanet launches this special edition “Housing & Community Development” campaign. The aim of this campaign is to garner support and heighten awareness to the affordable housing crisis affecting millions of people nationwide, highlight feasible solutions to making housing more affordable and push policy makers and leadership groups to take ownership.

The affordable housing crisis has reached a critical point. According to the Pew Research Center analysis of Census Bureau housing data, 40 percent of households are rent-burdened, putting more than 30 percent of their income towards housing costs. The issue grows as demand for housing options disproportionately increase more rapidly than available housing. With so many Americans in need, it’s hard to determine one viable solution.

The print component of “Housing & Community Development” is distributed within today’s edition of USA Today in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Dallas, Denver, Southern Florida and Seattle markets, with a circulation of approximately 250,000 copies and an estimated readership of 750,000. The digital component is distributed nationally, through a vast social media strategy and across a network of top news sites and partner outlets.

Soul Foundation’s mission to break the cycle of poverty, hunger and homelessness — issues resulting from the lack of housing accessibility and affordability — through developing partnerships, creating programs and providing grant funding to community benefit organizations. Through an exclusive interview on the interior, Bon Jovi states, “These issues affect your neighbors, your family members — anyone from your community. Everyone is really just one life event away from finding themselves in need of some support.”
