Are you “Haunted” By High Housing Prices? Do you worry that your children will never be able to afford to live in Tustin?
Join us on Tuesday, October 22 to learn what we can do to create affordable housing in Southern California – it’s possible and we can make a difference! We’ll hear from housing experts about the challenges we face in Orange County to provide affordable housing for everyone.
We’ll be discussing the merits of SB50 as one possible solution among many with special guest speakers Kimberly Adams from YES In My Backyard and Kelsey M. Brewer from Jamboree Housing Corp.
