Churches forgo the hammer on housing

The Christian housing ministry Habitat for Humanity builds houses using volunteer labor and has helped many low-income families become homeowners. But the recent foreclosure crisis and shortage of rental units have opened my eyes to an even bigger need — helping families to stay in their homes.

Instead of swinging a hammer, I'm meeting with developers, bankers and politicians in an effort to preserve affordable housing for my needy church members and neighbors. It's a trend that has caught on across the country.
