United Way hosts Leadership Morris

HANOVER — Shannon French summed up a prevailing sentiment when it comes to how affordable housing projects are perceived in news reports.

“You always see the bad stuff,” French, a New York resident and member of the Leadership Morris Class of 2011, said Tuesday during a tour of the Rose House group home in Cedar Knolls.

The United Way of Northern New Jersey Housing Alliance is trying to dispel the stigma affordable housing carries, and that’s why it hosted its sixth annual Morris County Affordable Housing Showcase Bus Tour.
