Living in a beautiful and desirable area means housing prices and rent are beyond what many can afford -- and availability of housing is low. Two local organizations work with people seeking help for their housing needs. Jeanette Duncan and Sheryl Flores from People's Self Help Housing, and Julia Ogden from Habitat for Humanity talk about the housing needs in our communities and the solutions their organizations offer.
