Housing Ready Communities

The Housing Ready Communities initiative brings together neighbors, community groups, nonprofits, government and housing developers to take action and support approval of new supportive housing and extremely low income affordable housing in Santa Clara County.

What is a "housing ready" community?

Housing Ready Communities are aware of our homelessness crisis, understand that supportive housing is a proven solution to end homelessness, and take action to support new housing development.

Housing Ready Communities organize, show up and speak out to dispel myths about homelessness and talk with neighbors about the urgent need for affordable and supportive housing.

Can we count on you to help us build Housing Ready Communities in Santa Clara County?

Our Community Plan to End Homelessness sets a goal of creating 6,000 new homes with supportive services spread throughout every city and district in our community.

Thanks to 2016 voter approval of the County of Santa Clara Affordable Housing Bond, federal tax credit programs, and investment from cities and private sector partners, funding is available to help reach this goal.

But money is not the only challenge, and we need help in your neighborhood and at public meetings to build support and make sure proposed developments are approved and funded. Your voice will make a difference. To get involved, join the Housing Ready Communities Action Network today!

Supportive Housing Ends Homelessness

What is the challenge we face?

Homelessness impacts people and neighborhoods throughout Santa Clara County.

Our homeless population is diverse, including veterans, families with children and working adults.

The housing crisis affects us all, but is most severe for people with very low or extremely low income.

What is the solution?

Supportive housing is proven to end homelessness.

Managing homelessness is expensive. Ending homelessness is more cost-efficient.

We are making progress with new housing throughout the county.

Supportive housing means nice apartment buildings that are neighborhood assets.

How can you help?

You can make a difference! Join the Housing Ready Communities Action Network to make sure we build new housing for those who need it most.
