What will it take to end homelessness and poverty in the Bay Area? Leaders across the Bay Area who are working to make a positive impact on the lives of extremely low-income people have an answer –it will take all of us. No one sector, city, or county can do it alone. We must work as a region to eradicate systemic racism, and fix our existing housing and economic imbalances that perpetuate poverty and homelessness in the Bay Area. With the impacts of COVID-19 deepening our existing homelessness crisis, it is critically important for us to think and act together to create a Bay Area where everyone thrives.

Join the Bay Area Homelessness Funders Network to discuss the connection between economic and housing justice, hear a preview of the Regional Action Plan from All Home, and to determine actions philanthropy can take to ensure lasting stable housing, and true economic opportunity for extremely low-income people in the Bay Area.

Meeting Goals:
 
  • Deepen understanding of the connection between economic and housing justice, and need for regional alignment to address Bay Area poverty and homelessness.
  • Learn about the themes emerging from the Regional Action Plan from All Home, and the next steps for implementation.
  • Build relationships among participants, and generate ideas for how philanthropy can advance solutions for preventing and ending poverty and homelessness.
