Affordable Housing at the Legislature

California’s housing crisis impacts 39 million people, our health, education and employment opportunities, as well as families’ preservation and reunification chances. Across the state, and in the Bay Area especially, housing has risen to the top of voters’ concerns — and Californians expect action.

 

We believe that everyone deserves a place to call home – and the California Legislature and Governor can create significant opportunities towards this goal in the 2017 legislative session.
