A roof is just the beginning…
The governor and voters have said YES to affordable housing!
Affordable Housing Month, 2018, in the San Francisco Bay Area is the perfect opportunity to learn more, get involved, and invite your friends and family to join the affordable housing movement. These events provide opportunities to understand our current housing challenges and identify opportunities for solutions. Join together with affordable housing supporters and advocates to make progress for Bay Area Affordable Housing!
This #AffordableHousingMonth, it’s time to deepen our work.
Different regions celebrated Affordable Housing Week (#AHW2017) last year as an educational and community building opportunity for advocates, government, practitioners and the general public. This year the weeks are coming together to form a month-long occasion. Festivities and events kick off around the San Francisco Bay Area in the month of May!
Spring is the season for affordable housing outreach and education. Join the events and tours as our advocacy partners host a month of festivities and educational opportunities highlighting the design, operation and partnerships that lead to thriving affordable housing communities.
