December Update

So many of our neighbors aren't.

That's why faith organizations all over the county are opening their doors to shelter residents with no roof over their heads, feeding children and their families, and providing warmth with coats and scarfs as gifts. As you share your generosity at this time of year, the Multi-faith ACTION Coalition asks you for help that will lead to sustainability for families in need.  Attention this month is focused on finding housing for the 40 Veterans ready to rent, but unable to find a unit.  They need a landlord or property owner to give them a chance.

Here’s where you come in! Are you a property owner or landlord?  Do you know one? You can play a key role in honoring those that have served our country by renting your next vacant unit to a Veteran or to someone who has completed the necessary steps to gain a place to live. 
As we struggle to build enough affordable and subsidized housing to keep up with demand, finding and recruiting landlords willing to rent to these residents is more important than ever. That's why Contra Costa County is launching the Landlord Engagement, Access and Placement program with new landlord incentives, including a Housing Security Fund. If every landlord considered modifying their screening criteria in order to rent to just one low-income individual or family with rental barriers, we’d be that much closer to making homelessness rare, brief and a one-time occurrence for thousands of individuals and families in our county.
