Our Priorities in Southern California

  • Advance cross-sectoral advocacy for additional local and state resources for affordable housing while continuing to create innovative financial tools that preserve and create homes connected to opportunity - good schools, jobs, transit and health care
  • Foster a collaboration of public agencies, philanthropic organizations and businesses to ensure that public transit is connected to affordable housing
  • Promote placed-based community development initiatives that leverage resources, inform policy leaders and build capacity of our community development partners
  • Design and implement a Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) Preservation Initiative, focused on capacity building and policy development to create sustainable solutions to address the aging PSH portfolio that serves Los Angeles’ most vulnerable – homeless and senior populations
  • Support nonprofit developers to strengthen their capacity to increase the production and preservation of affordable housing, and to grow resident services and engagement to enhance their communities and the people they serve
