A study released this week found that it's harder than ever for low-income families to afford a place to live. According to data from the National Low Income Housing Coalition, an employee earning minimum wage has to work 92 hours per week in order to afford a basic two-bedroom apartment in Cuyahoga County. As we continue our Focus on Affordable Housing, ideastream's Janet Babin reports one organization on Cleveland's West Side is helping to bridge the increasing gap between low-income residents and places to call home.
