In Binghamton, NY, housing insecurity has been exacerbated by the increased demand for university students who are moving off-campus to save money. This has caused difficulty for low-income households to find affordable housing. An important way to address concerns with the availability and affordability of housing is to recognize the importance of nonprofits. Nonprofits work to further support low-income families to find affordable housing by filling in some of the gaps that public housing can’t fill. Through qualitative research methods such as investigating scholarly sources, participating with nonprofits, and discussions, I analyze some of the nonprofits in the greater Binghamton area and their impact. This research project provides insight into the housing sector in the Greater Binghamton area and can be used as background for further in-depth analysis on this topic.
