Everyone should have the opportunity to live in a safe, healthy, affordable home.

Santa Clara County residents voted to pass a historic bond on the November 2016  ballot to help create more affordable housing in one of the wealthiest regions of the world.

“Measure A is a monumental opportunity for our community to rise to the challenge and provide support to our community members who need our help: Families and children who are living on our streets.” – Eileen Richardson, CEO of Downtown Streets Team

Measure A for Affordable Housing will provide up to $950 million in affordable housing solutions for our community by creating affordable housing for our children, veterans, people with disabilities, working families, seniors, and thousands of others in need.

This bond will directly impact our Team Members who are homeless and living on a low income. Downtown Streets Team and other homeless services will be able to help the single mothers, veterans, seniors and families get the housing they deserve.
