    As Philadelphia has grown more desirable and its housing prices increase , there is valid concern that the city needs to address housing affordability. There are 15,000 people who access a shelter in Philadelphia each year, more than 100,000 people on the Philadelphia Housing Authority waitlist, and about 26 percent of the city's population earning below the federal poverty level of $24,300 per year for a family of four.
