Event description
Addressing the Challenge of Affordable Housing in the Tri-Valley.

About this Event

Developing more affordable housing is essential to ending poverty, supporting our local economy, and maintaining a decent quality of life for all residents. Join the Tri-Valley Anti-Poverty Collaborative (TVAPC) for an important presentation on the role of housing and what can be done to make sure housing needs are met for everyone in the Tri-Valley.

Keynote speakers include David Garcia, Policy Director at UC Berkeley’s Terner Center for Housing Innovation, and Gloria Bruce, Executive Director of East Bay Housing Organizations. Mr. Garcia will discuss the origins of the current housing crisis in California and potential innovative solutions to creating more homes and affordability for individuals from all walks of life. Ms. Bruce will discuss how affordable housing and homelessness are linked as part of the same crisis of poverty and inequity, and will introduce the "3 Ps" concept of "production, protection, and preservation" as three critical ways to make sure that people can have access to quality affordable homes.

TVAPC was formed as a means of helping address key challenges to eliminate poverty in the region. TVAPC partners include non-profits, the faith community, school districts, Tri-Valley cities, Alameda County, businesses, and residents who work together to improve health, education, housing and food access for individuals and families in need.
