Are They Rights

At this spring's National Leadership Development Day, Santo Gairo, Director of the Bucks County Housing Group, helped our leaders focus on people in very special need…in need of affordable housing among other things.Mr. Gairo wanted to establish the assumption that all people have the right to have their basic needs met. (You may or may not agree with him, but we all need to be sensitive to the plight of many people.) Food, shelter, clothing - these are just a few basic human needs.

Santo wanted everyone to realize that all people, rich and poor, have the same wants.We all want respect and dignity for ourselves and for our family.
