PCH introduces new directors, affirming link between health care and housing
Princeton Community Housing (PCH) is pleased to introduce two new directors, both health executives at Penn Medicine Princeton Health. Jacqueline Kavouras is a registered nurse and currently serves as vice president of population health management, and James Demetriades is the CEO.
We are particularly pleased to have Ms. Kavouras and Mr. Demetriades join us given the important link between health care and housing. Both issues have particular resonance at this time – COVID-19 has raised new economic challenges for many in our community.
Historically, the high cost of housing has forced working-class families to compromise between basic necessities such as food, transportation, and health care. This is particularly the case in Princeton where the cost of housing is so high. Income determines where we live. Wealthy communities have high-quality public education, jobs, healthy food, medical care, and transportation. Those who live in an affordable home that is part of a nurturing community can more easily prioritize their health. When we develop affordable housing in Princeton, people of all socioeconomic levels can access the same resources.
