Springfield needs more quality housing that is affordable.

UAct advisor and content contributor, Steven Simpson-Black, approached Sheila early in UAct’s inception wanting to start a Tenant’s Association. Then life got in the way and the effort stalled. In late summer 2018, Steven again contacted UAct and this time the Quality Housing Coalition was born. Still in its early stages, Steven, Sheila, Rebecca Luke, Marcia Dean, Allissa Hall, Bill McMahon, Aaron Pinkston-El and Scott Saunders are studying the issue and meeting to design and develop the effort. There is more to come in 2019.
