Eugene Jones, Jr. is the author of HOUSING HUMANS. He is a public housing policy change agent with over 35 years of executive leadership experience in advocating for affordable housing in major cities across the United States and even Toronto, Canada. His vision is to build communities where people can live with dignity in partnership with both private and public sectors and with Housing Urban Development Government Affairs.
Eugene explains his urgent call-to-action for national housing policy reform in his latest book, HOUSING HUMANS. Eugene begins by telling readers of his early life and specifically of experiences that led him to find his career and passion in housing development. Eugene gives readers a ‘lesson in leadership’ and some great applicable advice from his time in the United States Air Force.
Eugene describes the absolute dire need to bring awareness to this plight in America. Homelessness and the the increasing shortage of affordable homes for low-income household families who are at or below the poverty guidelines is a crisis and pandemic that any American could face in the foreseeable future, if policy does not drastically change.
Eugene (Gene) has worked in community outreach with numerous organizations in varied roles throughout his life. There is one in particular that he has a deep connection with–Big Brothers Big Sisters of America (BBBS). Gene has been a Big Brother to a Little Brother for over 40 years. Because of his deep, personal relationship with the BBBS organization, Gene has decided to donate 10% of all book proceeds to the BBBS program. Gene sees the BBBS as a preventative and proactive organization that changes the lives and trajectories of children and their families, giving them the opportunities to reach their full potential.
