At Habitat for Humanity Greater San Francisco, we believe that all our neighbors — no matter their income level or background — should have an opportunity to stay in the community that they love. Helping more people by providing local families with a springboard to secure, stable futures through affordable homeownership only serves to strengthen the fabric and economies of the cities and towns in which we all live and work.
Habitat Greater San Francisco encourages its supporters and all advocates for affordable housing to take action. Here are a few ways you can become a housing advocate:
1. Vote for Prop. 1 (the Veterans and Affordable Housing Act) in November
This November, Prop. 1 is a housing solution we need. The Veterans and Affordable Housing Act is expected to create 137,000 jobs and pump $23.4 billion into California’s economy. For more information, please visit www.vetsandaffordablehousingact.org.
2. Talk to your friends, family, and neighbors
The best way to get a message out is to talk to people you know. Begin a dialogue about local community issues and ask them to support funding for affordable housing.
3. Spread the word on social media
Share your passion for affordable homeownership on your social network. You can always share our posts on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Instagram.
