Can I Be Your Neighbor

Community Education campaign rolls out

Can I Be Your Neighbor

Later this month, nurses, teacher’s aides, customer service reps, bank tellers, emergency medical technicians and other folks who contribute to the quality of life in our county will be asking you that simple question.  You’ll see them on posters and billboards, newspaper ads and flyers.  It’s all part of a campaign to educate the community about the types of individuals who may need access to safe, stable and affordable housing.

The campaign, developed by Polk County Housing Trust Fund, is being supported by  Bankers Trust, Kemin Industries, Newbury Development, EMC Insurance Companies, DART, as well as other organizations committed to providing affordable housing to qualified residents.  

These corporations and organizations share our belief that “everyone benefits with affordable housing” — a statement you’ll see throughout the “Can I Be Your Neighbor” campaign.
