Making a Home for All: A Special Posada
December 20, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Join Bishop Oscar Cantú, Catholic Charities and the parishes of Santa Teresa, Holy Family and St. Julie Billiart for a special posada focused on housing and homelessness
Organized by Catholic communities, this event is open to the public and is an excellent opportunity to celebrate proposed new supportive and affordable senior housing, and to learn more about how faith communities can participate as we work together to build Housing Ready Communities throughout Santa Clara County.
As Catholic and other Christian communities make room for the Holy Family at Christmas time, they also believe that congregations and neighborhoods must also make room for people who need supportive and affordable housing. Everyone needs a place to call home.
Catholic Charities of Santa Clara County, Grupo Solidaridad and the parishes of Santa Teresa, Holy Family and St. Julie Billiart invite the broader community to join them as they celebrate and welcome new neighbors together in South San Jose (at the intersection of San Jose districts 2, 7 and 10), including a proposed Charities Housing development in their neighborhood.

Destination: Home is thrilled to see this kind of partner involvement! Taking our Housing Ready Communities initiative to faith communities and neighborhood groups is incredibly important.
Please contact us if you have an idea for a Housing Ready Communities event in your neighborhood! Examples include a presentation and discussion with your neighborhood association or church group, or a potluck dinner with concerned neighbors.
We look forward to future collaboration on neighborhood events as we all work together to approve, build and support new housing for those who need it most.
