With Labor Day around the corner, the official campaign season kicks off and three campaigns NPH has supported invite you to be a part of their success this fall. Join campaign efforts in your community and link up with NPH Action Fund, EBHO, HLC, and SV@Home to win!

Santa Clara County – Yes on A
 Campaign Kick-off August 29, 5:00-7pmRSVP Today, Elks Lodge, 1680 Martin Ave., Santa Clara CA 95050. Fun, pinatas, volunteer opportunities. Join NPH and SV@Home on the Ambassadors speakers’ bureau for outreach and field activities.

Yes on A, the Homelessness and Housing Bond, invests in our most vulnerable communities to end homelessness and help everyone have a roof over their head. It’s a game changing $950 million investment in permanent supportive housing, homes for very low-income seniors, veterans, families and people with disabilities, as a well as working families and first-time homebuyers.

San Mateo County – Yes on K

Housing Community Speakers Bureau Training, Thursday, September 1,2:30-4:30pmRSVP today. 1300 S El Camino Real, #100, San Mateo, 94402. Join Housing Leadership Council, NPH and Neighbors for Affordability and Quality of Life, the Yes on K Campaign, to review message points and plan outreach to community leaders and potential endorsers.

Measure K, supported by County leadership, housing advocates, business leaders and community organizations, will increase investment in affordable homes and quality services. If voters approve 20-year extension of the half-cent sales tax, millions per year could be generated for affordable homes.

Alameda County – Yes on A1

1918 Martin Luther King Jr. Way, Oakland 94612

Join EBHO, NPH, housing advocates and community leaders to dig deep into Alameda County and make every vote count for Yes on A1, the $580 million Affordable Housing Bond. It will fund development of new rental opportunities, first-time and second-chance homeownership, and an Innovation Fund to allow pre-qualification for funding and rapid response that protects existing affordability.

Calling All Resident Services Directors


Voter Registration & Civic Engagement Training, Wednesday, September 7, 12noon-12pm
685 North 6th Street, San Jose CA 95112 (between Taylor & Jackson, on-street parking)

You go by many names, but you provide essential services for residents – whether you are a resource coordinator, a service provider, or a support specialist! Whatever your title, if your team works directly with residents, we want to work with you on voter registration and civic engagement. RSVP to Armand Hernandez, armand@nonprofithousing.org, if you can join us for lunch (special thanks to First Community Housing for hosting!) We’re producing signs and materials in the languages your peers asked for, plus newsletter and social media boilerplate. At our May and July meetings, we dived into voter registration. Now we turn our attention to education and engagement under 501c3 rules for non-profits.

Special Thanks to Regional Steering Committee and our generous donors


NPH board members, regional leaders and active advocates met early in August to review the status of our campaigns and make plans for this fall. We want to acknowledge the generous sponsorship of these members and partners, and encourage your continued commitment to lifting up our collective voice and winning investment in affordable homes. We will convene again in September and October by phone to monitor progress. Now is the time to fulfill pledges so that mail and voter contact plans can be completed.
