Affordable Housing Week 2016

Thank you for making EBHO's 20th
Annual Affordable Housing Week a success! 

During the week we hosted 17 great events in 6 cities that showcased the countless ways we can collectively invest in homes and hope: 

Volunteers provided sweat equity to support affordable homeownership in Martinez
We visioned new ways to improve access to affordable housing through shared housing in Walnut Creek 
We honed our advocacy skills and prepared to take direct action for housing justice in Oakland and in Alameda
Residents honored on-site affordable housing staff and EBHO welcomed the 2016 Leadership Academy Graduates as leaders in the affordable housing movement in Oakland
At tours, ground breakings, and grand openings from Oakland to Orinda, and with Proclamations across the East Bay, we celebrated the importance of affordable housing and the hope it brings to the community for generations to come. 

Thanks again for joining us and celebrating the accomplishments and hope that powerful partnerships in housing justice and affordable housing investment brings to our communities!
