2020: Housing the Disposessed

Natural and man-made disasters impact the lives of millions of people every day. Once the most immediate safety concerns have been addressed, the central themes of Home Economics are the main focus of impacted families - Food, Shelter, Clothing and Love. Housing solutions vary by region and Home Economists worldwide play an important role to “make home” for those who’ve lost their home.
