Social Enterprise in Human Services and Affordable Housing
MetadataShow full item record
Human services and affordable housing are two constant themes in the history of CED and the social economy. This is not surprising. How we care for each other, or not, speaks centrally to the character of our social relations and what we value. If the big task is to promote the re-insertion of social and environmental goals into the heart of our economic life, as advanced in Part 1, then the smaller tasks associated with making such ideas real, enterprise by enterprise and project by project, are the crucial building blocks. Organizing services and housing in ways that empower us to better care for each other remain important arenas for expanding the social economy.
