Research Paper on Sustainable Low- Income Housing The most successful, long term, low-income housing projects are those that use sustainable design and address the social, cultural, and economic needs of residents. Traditionally built low-income housing projects are associated with high crime rates and high mortality rates among the residents who live in them. They do not provide for the needs of residents, resulting in many of the problems these low-income housing projects face today. These problems range from endangerment of human life, psychological afflictions due to the high stresses that are endured by residents, disease epidemics caused by overcrowding and unsanitary living conditions (in combination with a substandard public health system,) and rejection from the greater community based on the stigma traditional low-income housing projects have generated. Sustainable, or “green” design offers many solutions to the problems housing projects present today, including healthier living environments, high efficiency utility systems that result in lower bills for residents, safe recreation areas for common use, a sense of community within the project as well as with the greater community, and aesthetically pleasing environments to live in. Building with sustainable materials alone will not alleviate the problems traditional housing has, but must combine elements of sustainable design with residents’ needs. By implementing sustainable low-income housing projects with residents’ need in mind, the developers, residents, and the community as a whole will benefit. Low-income housing projects that are sustainably designed are intrinsically better than traditionally built housing projects for a variety of reasons, including the benefits they provide to a wide range of people. Residents of low-income housing projects that are sustainably built can benefit in a myriad of ways. Sustainable design incorporates energy-efficient and water-conserving technologies in the

My perception of quality of life changed dramatically during this project. Living at a low income wage was a difficult thing to do especially at $26,560 a year. Living with all of the basic necessities took up a large portion of my paycheck. At a wage where my wife and I are barely getting our family by is stressful on many levels. I was trying to find the best deals on food and after school care without sacrificing quality and health. Cheaper food was not nutritional so I had to….

This essay will consider if children from low income families are disadvantaged in the education system. It will examine if there is a direct link between poverty and low educational attainment.

After doing this assignment I realized some of the reason that low-income families do what they do. It is very hard for a family to live off of a minimum wage salary; it doesn’t matter if it is a single parent or a two-parent household. The more people are in a household, the more expenses there will be, I never really thought about that concept until doing this assignment.
Something’s that some people might take for granted can actually be a luxury to others. A car for example, I never realized….

I’m writing about raising awareness to low-income children around America that aren’t able to play sports. I have been blessed and lucky: that I had parents that had the resources for me to be able to play at high level of soccer, basketball, football, and lacrosse. You can call me a spoiled brat because I had pirate lessons which consisted $60 per hour (sometimes more) when it came to basketball. I was also able to go to sports camps before the seasons started which gave me an advantage when the….

Some of my friends settle for their position in society and never really consider really trying to improve or better their lifestyle. I….
