Dr. Mark Joseph, faculty associate of the Center on Urban Poverty and Community Development and Director of the National Initiative on Mixed-Income Communities, will be a panelist at the Healthy Housing, Healthy Communities, Healthy Lives talk in New York City this Thursday. Dr. Joseph’s panel is on Building Community, Connecting to Service and Property Management: Testing a New Paradigm for Mixed-Income Housing.
“As most seasoned multi-family housing owners of privately-owned, subsidized housing know (for profit and not for profit), as challenging as it is to develop and finance housing, coping with the realities of people living together with radically different backgrounds, social norms, and household needs presents significant social, health, and other challenges. At the prompting of Richard Baron, McCormack Baron Salazar, Washington University’s George Warren Brown School of Social Work has been testing a new approach–training professionals who are skilled in property and people skills, professionals who are more able to help a community of divergent people thrive. This session explores the potential relevance of this approach to New York City.”
Dr. Joseph is joined by fellow panelists Richard Baron of McCormack Baron Salazar and Vicki Been of the NYC Department of Housing Preservation and Development; the panel is moderated by Paul C. Brophy of Brophy & Reilly LLC. The talk is being presented by the NYU Furman Center, Enterprise, and the George Warren Brown School of Social Work.
