Welcome to SV@Home’s Affordable Housing Month 2024 Housewarming! Join us on Friday, May 3rd, 12:00 PM, for a celebration of community and an engaging learning opportunity at Open San Jose. SV@Home and Working Partnerships USA (WPUSA) are the Santa Clara County co-leads on a 9-county regional affordable housing bond measure. Special guest Maria Noel Fernandez, Executive Director of WPUSA, will lead our panel of experts to illuminate this effort to bring billions of dollars for affordable housing to Silicon Valley and the Bay Area.
