Affordable Housing Week is EBHO’s 10-day-long celebration of affordable homes, the benefits they bring to communities, and the people who live in, develop, manage and support affordable housing.  We raise awareness in Alameda and Contra Costa Counties through our members’ grand openings, groundbreaking, tours, and panel discussions.  We also launch EBHO’s annual Affordable Housing Guidebook.  See a photo album from last year here.

At its core, Affordable Housing Week is about lifting up the results of collective advocacy. Our events Affordable Housing Week reaches thousands of people in cities across the East Bay, gaining attention from the media, elected officials and the general public. Highlights are EBHO’s annual Kick-Off Celebration, attended by 400 members and supporters, and Housing Sabbath, where speakers visit congregations of different faiths to spread the word about housing justice.
