Thank you for visiting Making Housing Happen website!  I hope you found the site helpful, including the brief description of each model and links to more resources. I would love you consider how you might use Making Housing Happen in an educational context or in your church outreach ministry.

I am also available to speak or do workshops for your church or organization. Please contact me and we can discuss the details.

Also, if you are aware of other models, resources, links, or any other ways that affordable housing has been created or preserved, please contact us.

My mother, Donna Shook, helps support my urban work with her art. She graciously painted the wonderful template used on this site. It is a composite of several housing models featured in this book using the medium of transparent watercolor. Please visit her website to view her other work at:
