There are lots of easy ways to get involved and help support the development of affordable homes in Orange County and spread awareness about the housing shortage. Here are a few suggestions:
Attend A Meeting or Write A Letter. Housing development is a public affair. Attending a meeting or writing a letter lets your city officials know that people in the community care about housing issues and support affordable developments. Contact your city administration for a schedule of housing committee meetings or visit your city's website. For more information or assistance, please Contact Us.
Take A Tour. The best way to disarm negative stereotypes about affordable homes is to visit a development in your area. If you are interested in arranging a group tour for your local organization, church, or business, please contact us and we would be happy to help. For information about developments in your area, click Here.
