Far too many families of color have been priced out of their homes in Savannah. According to the Housing Savannah Task Force, about 40% of households in the city cannot afford quality housing, and a single person would have to work 2.5 jobs at minimum wage just to afford a one-bedroom apartment.
Without housing security, communities cannot thrive and culture suffers. Galvan is committed to helping Savannah push back, just as we have helped Hudson for the past 10 years. To start, we have granted $50,000 to the Savannah Affordable Housing Fund and provided support to other organizations in the city. In the future, we will continue working with community leaders to preserve the character of Savannah and its diverse, historic neighborhoods.
