How we work:

Every family has the right to a stable, affordable home. It takes Protection, Preservation, and Production to meet our housing challenge. Collaboration across sectors -- business, community-based organizations, philanthropy and government -- is key to success. Transformative policy change and significant investment in building and preserving affordable homes are needed.

The Partnership for the Bay’s Future launched in 2019 with a goal of investing at least $500 million by the end of 2025. We believe that ensuring the right of Bay Area families of all races and economic backgrounds have access to quality, affordable homes is crucial to creating, and maintaining healthy, resilient communities.  

Created in collaboration with community partners who are closest to the region’s housing challenges – faith-based leaders, housing experts, elected officials, and residents – the Partnership works toward reaching a shared goal of protecting the homes of up to 175,000 Bay Area households, and preserving and producing 8,000 homes in the next 10 years in San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Alameda and Contra Costa counties.

In 2023, Hayward’s Mt Eden neighborhood in Alameda County will be home to a new, 125-unit Permanent Supportive Housing Development. When complete, this project will provide housing for individuals and families earning 20%-60% Average Median Income (AMI), and may ultimately be able to house residents earning as little as 15% AMI. Abode Services, a nonprofit organization committed to ending homelessness, purchased the site at 2595 Depot Road from Horizon Services, Inc. — a nonprofit social service organization with alcohol and drug treatment centers across the Bay Area.  The acquisition was funded by Corporation for Supportive Housing (CSH), a national affordable housing non-profit,with participation from peer organization Capital Impact Partners, leveraging capital from the Bay’s Future Fund. 

In addition to providing a home, the development will offer integrated services to help the formerly homeless families and individuals who live there get back on their feet. 

 

 

 

 

The Partnership’s Challenge Grants were awarded in Feb. 2020 to local governments and community organization partners working to advance tenant protection and affordable housing preservation in their communities. In San Jose, our Challenge Grantee partners have been instrumental in: helping secure City Council passage of a city-wide anti-displacement strategy to protect low-income residents; winning a grant for a pilot affordable housing preservation program; creating a community engagement plan; and mobilizing for emergency response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
