We need more affordable housing in the U.S.—that much we can agree on. But, how do we get there?

Join Quadel President Katie Goar each week as she talks with finance experts, policy makers, thought leaders, and community organizers to discuss how to create more affordable housing—and more opportunity—for people across the country.
