The Housing Gap in Alameda
Housing for people at low and middle income levels has become quite limited in Alameda and the Bay Area. This gap in housing choices affects many families, seniors and individuals who now live – or now work in – in Alameda. Rents and property values have escalated very quickly. Residents of limited means, including our very own teachers, fire fighters, caregivers, and seniors on fixed incomes, are being forced to leave. We believe that a range of housing alternatives – and pricing – is essential to maintaining a healthy, vibrant community.
Please join us in working toward this goal or attend an upcoming community forum on housing development. If you are struggling to find a home in these challenging times, the East Bay Housing Organizations' website provides steps to finding affordable housing and a list of resources.
Who lives in affordable housing? Seniors, families with children, people facing health challenges or disabilities, or those who simply are starting a new phase of life - in short, people of all backgrounds. Our goal is to support housing development for all incomes by celebrating success of existing mixed-income housing; establishing an online presence; participating in community events and providing educational forums for community members to learn and speak about affordable housing; and to gather ”success stories”, primarily of Alamedans who have received assistance in affordable housing and whose families have become independent because of this help. These success stories are due to be released in a booklet "Stories from Alameda." AHT is currently looking for sponsorship to cover the printing and distribution costs.
If you or your organization is interested in becoming a sponsor for "Stories from Alameda", please contact Patricia Young, AHT Executive Director at firstname.lastname@example.org
