Saving the Dream”, A Serious Discussion About the Challenges to Preserving Affordable Housing.

t’s not too late to register for the Philadelphia Council for Community Advancement’s 2013 Report  to the Community on Wednesday, November 13, 2013 at 8:00 AM at The Union League of Philadelphia, 180 S. Broad St in Center City.

The topic for the morning is “Saving the Dream”, a serious discussion about the challenges to preserving affordable housing.  The recession, slow economic recovery and a widening economic gap have turned the dream of homeownership into a nightmare for many households in the Greater Philadelphia area.  These factors have also placed the American Dream of beyond the reach of others.  Equal housing opportunity for a growing segment of the area’s population is being threatened by the depressed economic climate, stagnant unemployment, increasing household operating expenses, and changes in credit and lending policies.

PCCA hopes to lead the conversation about solutions to these problems.  During the event, PCCA will use its experience, along with other professionals from the field, to have a dialog that will examine critical issues facing homeowners who are trying to save their homes and first-time homebuyers, who are seeking to capture dream.

Individual tickets for the breakfast forum can also be purchased for $25.00. or to become a sponsor go to  and reserve your seats.  For more information contact Pierrette Pearson at 215-567-7803 Ext. 2133 or
