Affordable Housing Week and Month - SV@Home

Our community needs us now more than ever. Find out more about COVID-19 and its impact on Silicon Valley renters and homeowners.


Affordable Housing Month 2020 #BeMyNeighbor

SV@Home convened our regional housing partners throughout Santa Clara County in celebrating a virtual Affordable Housing Month 2020 this May! Our fifth annual public education and awareness campaign pivoted from a weeks-long to a month-long program, with creative community engagement opportunities, in a time when the importance of a secure, safe, and affordable home has become even more crucial.

For AHM Silicon Valley, our theme this year — Be My Neighbor — was even more vital during this time. The global pandemic, coupled with our ongoing housing challenges, has made for a public health crisis at unprecedented scale. Yet even as we practice physical distancing, we are seeing in magnified ways how much we rely on the people, nonprofits, businesses, and government agencies around us for our individual and societal well-being.

Full of virtual events, activities for all ages, and invigorating conversations, AHM 2020 brought our community together to learn, engage, and act on how we can work to make Silicon Valley a more affordable place to live for all of our residents. We highlighted not only our housing challenges, but also dug into the solutions we are building together, with workshops, game nights, and more all online! View event recordings here.

You also joined the conversation during the Month by participating in our #BeMyNeighbor story share. We invited you to share a fond memory of a neighbor, whether from present day or your childhood. You can continue using the hashtag #BeMyNeighbor so we can share and highlight your story during Affordable Housing Month.
