Make sure you catch the recent op-ed in the Mercury News by SV@Home Board Chair Ron Gonzales (President and CEO of the Hispanic Foundation of Silicon Valley and former Mayor of San Jose) and SV@Home member Pat Showalter (Mayor of Mountain View.)
“Our housing crisis has continued to grow; so too must solutions.
This is the premise of the new regional initiative and voice for affordable housing in Silicon Valley, SV@Home, as the group debuts its Policy Roadmap next week. The Roadmap lays a strategic, coordinated pathway to address our housing crisis while spurring renewed focus and urgency around regional solutions.
The housing crisis that grips our nation is neither new nor unique to Silicon Valley. But our region is different in two important ways.”
Mayors Gonzales and Showalter lay clear that, despite the housing challenges we face, there are opportunities to drive relief by building out a strategic, coordinated, and regional approach. SV@Home is honored to be leading this charge.
