Barrios Unodos was established 40 years. Ago. They help people stay out of gangs, they help those who have been incinerated to get back to normal productive lives, and they also help to feed those who are in need of food for there families.

Daniel "Nane" Alejandrez founder of Barrios Unidos, spoke of the high cost of housing in Santa Cruz, those of us who can't afford the rising cost of housing, the continuing homelessness, and how our children can't afford to stay in there hometown. There is no question, housing has become a struggle for everyone living in California! Santa Cruz's home prices compare with San Francisco, and San Jose, while Santa Cuuz's wages are far below that of those cities! I do not want to imply that Santa Cruz stands alone, the problem exists just about everywhere in California!
