The Bay Area’s affordable housing crisis touches every single person in the Bay Area. Unaffordable rents and home prices in the Bay Area are pushing out many long time residents and forcing our workers farther from job centers and our vulnerable communities farther from their networks of support.

We invite you to learn more and get involved below!
