A national network of funders supporting strategic, innovative, and effective solutions to homelessness

California Homelessness & Housing Policy Funders Network Call: California's Roadmap HOME 2030 Initiative

Tuesday, June 30 | 12:00pm PT

California’s Roadmap HOME 2030 is an initiative to develop and implement a “Marshall Plan” for statewide housing and homelessness solutions. Under the leadership of Housing California and the California Housing Partnership, the initiative aims to bring together cross-sector experts and partners to clearly communicate the need for affordable housing in the state, outline what it will take to meet the need by 2030, then influence the state policy agenda to move legislation and investments in the right direction.

This call will help funders in California understand the “whys” and “hows” of Roadmap HOME, as well as how philanthropy can be a collaborative partner in shaping and supporting the framework of the policy agenda to enact large scale structural change across the state.

Learning Objectives:

During this California Homelessness & Housing Policy Funder Network call, participants will:

  • Learn about the Roadmap HOME 2030 initiative and its goals to shape the policy agenda for homelessness and housing solutions in California.
  • Understand philanthropy’s role in the development and implementation of the 10-year policy blueprint.
  • Engage in discussion around informing and supporting the statewide initiative.

We joined Funders Together because we believe in the power of philanthropy to play a major role in ending homelessness, and we know we have much to learn from funders across the country.

-Christine Marge, Director of Housing and Financial Stability at United Way of Greater Los Angeles

I am thankful for the local partnerships here in the Pacific Northwest that we’ve been able to create and nurture thanks to the work of Funders Together. Having so many of the right players at the table makes our conversations – and all of our efforts – all the richer and more effective.

-David Wertheimer, Deputy Director at Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation

Very often a lack of jobs and money is not the cause of poverty, but the symptom. The cause may lie deeper in our failure to give our fellow citizens a fair chance to develop their own capacities, in a lack of education and training, in a lack of medical care and housing, in a lack of decent communities in which to live and bring up their children.

-President Lyndon B. Johnson, 1964 State of the Union Address

Funders Together has given me a platform to engage the other funders in my community. Our local funding community has improved greatly to support housing first models and align of resources towards ending homelessness.

-Leslie Strnisha, Vice President at Sisters of Charity Foundation of Cleveland

Our family foundation convenes local funders and key community stakeholders around strategies to end homelessness in Houston. Funders Together members have been invaluable mentors to us in this effort, traveling to our community to share their expertise and examples of best practices from around the nation.

-Nancy Frees Fountain, Managing Director at The Frees Foundation
