This very busy quarter saw a flurry of development and acquisition activity, awards bestowed upon NHPF properties and individuals, and our 5th Annual Symposium. We are so grateful for the outpouring of support for the Symposium, an evening of meaningful gathering, celebration and education.

Our Top Picks in this Quarter

As NHPF continues to inculcate our organizational culture with DEIJ policy reforms, we are interested in media offerings that explore issues of racial and social inequity. Some examples on our radar include:

  1. How We Can Win: Race, History and Changing the Money Game That's Rigged, written by NHPF Symposium keynote speaker Kimberly Latrice Jones, delves into the impacts of systemic racism and reveals how her formative years in Chicago gave birth to a lifelong devotion to justice.
  2. Squid Game is a brutal life or death social commentary or satire or both? Resonating worldwide, the South Korean dystopian horror series follows hundreds of debt-ridden citizens as they are forced to participate in a competition of childhood games with a huge cash prize—and be killed if they lose.
  3. Holistic Housing Podcast is hosted by our Symposium moderator Laura DeMaria and is an accessible, wide-ranging conversation with a variety of guests covering everything from gentrification, workforce development, homelessness, urban revitalization, sustainability, placemaking, and the American Dream. This episode is an interview with Ken White, Executive Director, Operation Pathways, discussing the importance of onsite resident services.
  4. Maid is the Netflix adaptation of the bestseller that follows a young single mother, who, after escaping an abusive relationship, sets off on a chaotic, grinding slog to simply survive. It is particularly vivid in its accurate portrait of the agonizing bureaucracy required in seeking government assistance for housing, daycare, and food.
