As Wells Fargo continues to concentrate its philanthropic power to address the housing affordability crisis in the U.S., the company is working with industry experts and problem solvers from across the country for insight and ideas on how to bring about systemic change.

Jon Campbell, executive vice president of Wells Fargo Corporate Philanthropy and Community Relations, joined Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity CEO Chris Coleman to examine America’s growing problem of housing affordability during a session at The Atlantic’s Heartland summit in Minneapolis in September. 

“Too many people see the housing crisis as someone else’s problem and not their own,” said Campbell. “But no state in the Union has enough affordable housing — it’s 7 million units today in the United States that we are short on — making it a societal issues that will take collaboration from all of us to solve.”
