The affordable housing and homelessness crisis continues to be top of mind for many stakeholders in California. As the Administration continues its focus on homelessness in the state, it is essential for philanthropy to come together to build a coalition of influence and expertise by gaining a shared understanding and knowledge of policies that directly impact housing affordability and stability across California. Historically, from redlining practices to criminalizing homelessness, homelessness and housing policy have contributed to the crises we are in now. We must address these harmful policies and support equitable, inclusive and data driven solutions at the State and local level.
Building on learnings from the 2019 California Homelessness and Affordable Housing State Policy Convening for Philanthropy in Sacramento last December, join peers from across the state to continue the critical conversation about what it will take to end homelessness and housing poverty in California through policy change at the California Homelessness and Housing Policy Funders Network meeting.
On April 14th, at the California Homelessness and Housing Policy Funders Network meeting, held in conjunction with the Housing California 2020 Annual Conference in San Diego, we will discuss what’s been happening with homelessness and housing policy in California since the last meeting, and dive deep into topics such as the state of homelessness in California, the development of affordable housing across the state, supporting grassroots organizations or coalitions, and more. We will also use this meeting to explore the value of building a learning network for California funders that is focused on homelessness and housing policy.
You'll also have time to connect further with other funders at our networking reception following the meeting, from 4-6pm on April 14th. Location will be announced soon.
Stay tuned for a working agenda!
Please note that participation in this meeting is limited to private funders, including foundations, United Ways, corporate giving programs, individual philanthropists, and philanthropy serving organizations (PSOs).
