You’re cordially invited to join our Home Could be Here campaign. We’re teaming up with Street Life Ministries to host a BBQ to draw awareness to the severity of the housing shortage. We want people to be fed today, and housed tomorrow.

In the past three years, the number of people living in their cars in San Mateo County has almost doubled. We have thousands of residents who sleep on the sidewalks, in their backseats, or in parks in order to stay alive. Meanwhile, Caltrain has postponed an Affordable Housing Policy that would prioritize affordable housing on the land they lease or sell.

We know the long-term solutions. Street Life Ministries, a Redwood City-based church, provides hot meals for people who have to sleep in their cars at night. Together, we're standing up for housing solutions.
