This morning, I kicked-off my sabbatical by heading to Bread for the City's offices in NW. Stacey, the innovative case worker who is shepherding me and Code for DC through the affordable housing world, met me in the lobby.
Stacey was carrying a printed newspaper.
"I just saw this on the way in," she said, pointing to a rental listing. "A building just opened up a waiting list."
We are just scratching the surface. When I think about what I am doing during my sabbatical and what Code for DC has been doing over the past 1.5 years, we are helping just one piece of a much bigger problem.
