Revisiting Affordable Housing Week 2018


Let’s stay engaged.

Affordable Housing Week 2018

What a week! More than 1,400 people came together during Affordable Housing Week 2018 to learn about solutions to the region’s housing crisis and engage with the community to take concerted action to create a more vibrant and equitable Silicon Valley.

The week would not have been the success it was without the amazing effort of our SV@Home staff, our partners, and the rest of our community.

As we continue the work to fulfill the vision of a Silicon Valley where all people have a safe, stable, and affordable home, we must commit to staying engaged and active. As long as there are members of our community without a safe, affordable place to call home, every week is affordable housing week.

Meanwhile, you can relive Affordable Housing Week 2018 and check in on what you may have missed through SV@Home’s #ItsTime4Yes Twitter Moment and our Facebook albums.
