Affordable Housing on Faith Lands: two-part workshop!

RSVP now; space is limited!

ULI San Francisco (ULI SF) is hosting two in-person workshops to bring together faith institutions, homeless service providers, non-profit organizations, and affordable housing developers to explore how they can partner to provide housing solutions – including emergency interim and permanent affordable housing projects – in support of the City of San Jose.  

Participants will learn from faith-based and other leaders who have worked to develop housing solutions using their land, and will be introduced to the critical elements of leveraging real estate for housing solutions, including, site feasibility, organization readiness, and joint-venture partnerships.

Participants will also complete a questionnaire/assessment to help them determine what next steps they might take to explore their role in providing housing solutions. They will also have an opportunity to participate in a design charrette, an interactive group prototyping exercise on 1-2 emergency interim and/or permanent affordable housing sites. 

These workshops are being hosted as part of Affordable Housing Month! 

Who is invited:

  • Faith-based organizations with available land who want to explore how they can contribute to housing affordability solutions  (although interested participants within Santa Clara County are welcome to participate in our workshop events, we are most interested in exploring pathways with participants who have available land within the City of San Jose)
  • Homeless service providers and advocates
  • Affordable housing developers
  • City of San Jose and County of Santa Clara staff

Time and dates: 

  • Thursday, April 18, 2024, afternoon
  • Thursday, May 23, 2024, all-day

Note: Workshops build upon each other and we recommend attendees plan to attend both days. 

These workshops are organized as a part of the ULI Homeless to Housed Initiative; learn more here.

SV@HOME, David Baker Architects, and LISC Bay Area are serving as consultants on these workshops.
