low-income population in California no longer has the opportunity
for decent housing. The state's affordable housing stock,
according to the recent state evaluation, is shrinking and
deteriorating. Furthermore, the public and private sector
are severely lagging in capital investment required to make
low-income units available to low-income working families,
the aging poor and the infirmed.
shocking lack of housing is exacerbated by exclusionary zoning
laws. For example, about 6000 single-family homes were built
in San Luis Obispo County but only 300 rentals. A similar
pattern has emerged statewide. The housing stock is so out
of balance rents have nearly doubled in the last decade while
wages have remained relatively static.
order to address this problem, please consider making a donation

and capital, all of which will be used in perpetuity for affordable
housing in Central California.
