We’re a diverse, statewide coalition of advocates and organizations…
with a proven record of creating affordable housing, fighting homelessness, defending tenants’ rights, and advancing racial justice. We are unifying our energy and influence in order to achieve bold, structural change to create the future we all want for California–one where everyone can afford a home and homelessness is nonexistent.
With the leadership of Housing California and California Housing Partnership, we work toward our goals by centering racial equity and drawing on the expertise of a growing group of partners across our state.
In Partnership With
Housing California is one of the state’s largest nonprofit housing and homelessness advocacy organizations—dedicated to improving life within our golden state. Housing CA opens minds and organizes people most impacted by housing injustice and their allies to effectively advance equitable solutions grounded in social and economic policy research.
A statewide “do-and-think tank,” the Partnership provides expert financial and policy solutions to nonprofit and public partners to create and preserve affordable and sustainable homes for Californians with low incomes.
In Partnership With
The Budget Center is a nonpartisan, data-driven organization that works to improve public policies affecting the economic and social well-being of Californians with low and middle incomes.
Our engaged and diverse research and policy advisory committees, alongside our racial equity task force, are guiding the evolution of the Roadmap Home.
