Transit Oriented Development Works for People

Ida Watson, sharing her journey in overcoming homelessness in Houston, discusses the importance of affordable housing and transit in rebuilding her life. Ida received help from New Hope Housing, a nonprofit that provides residential and other essential services for unhoused populations. Strategically located near downtown Houston, New Hope Housing is better able to provide access to jobs and support the transition to stable housing. Ida’s story highlights the importance of situating social services near transit as an effective tool in reducing homelessness.
