Social Real Estate

Philanthropic housing provides comfortable living to less fortunate
Implications - One of the major social business ventures we've seen of late is philanthropic real estate, in which both for-profit and non-profit businesses are trying their hand at offering or supporting low-cost housing initiatives. Some companies are creating affordable homes for low-income families while others are donating their time and money to help causes that provide homes for the poor. Whichever it is, do-good housing is becoming a cause many brands, and consumers, are getting behind.
