YES Communities has launched a new podcast to tell the stories of residents and to share the dynamic advantages of living in a manufactured home community.
“What Living Means” is available at YES Communities website as well as through most commonly used podcasting platforms.
YES Communities Vice President of Marketing Vanessa Jasinski is the host of the show, which will provide a mix of authentic resident stories with discussions about particular experiences in raising children, engaging with the broader community, and finding ways to live affordably.
“This podcast is a way to look at manufactured home communities a little more closely from all angles, with both serious discussion and entertainment thrown in,” Jasinski said. “We work to make quality, affordable housing a reality for individuals and families across the United States—now we want to share those stories.”
Steven Schaub, YES Communities CEO, said “What Living Means” explores and brings to a wider audience the individual stories of the residents are powerful, and need to be heard in a new way. Guests on the show will share experiences from manufactured home communities nationwide, providing a variety of backgrounds and perspectives.
Some current topics being explored include the impact of afterschool programs for manufactured home community residents, the value of organized sports for children, and local resources that can provide family support and structure for individual residents.
“Our goal is to inform our listeners and recognize the individuals who are a part of YES Communities. We believe that both our residents and community team deserve more appreciation for the integral part they play both in their individual communities, as well as our larger YES Communities family,” Schaub said “We want to highlight the impactful but sometimes overlooked everyday actions that take place in our communities. We believe the podcast will allow a wider audience to join us in experiencing the extraordinary magic that lives in our family of communities.”
