United Way, Furman release study on impact of gentrification

A new report from the United Way of Greenville County (UWGC) in collaboration with Furman University looks at gentrification and its impact on communities. The first of its kind, the report combines qualitative and quantitative data from 72 residents in areas including Brandon, Berea, West Greenville, Haynie-Sirrine and Simpsonville.

In Greenville Journal, UWGC CEO Meghan Barp said, “It confirmed what we know: that people are struggling to make ends meet on the things that you and I care about for our families—quality transportation, affordable housing, access to quality housing.”
