Affordable Housing at the Legislature

Iron Horse Grand Opening

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! We’re proud of our progress in the Legislature, and look forward to building our momentum in 2018 to create more affordable housing for our seniors, veterans, people with disabilities, and hardworking families!
