GREAT NEWS TODAY! San Jose's City Council voted 10-1 approving two Bridge Housing Communities that will house an estimated 320 homeless individuals!
More information to come, and we are so thrilled to be working on this important + necessary project with Habitat for Humanity East Bay/Silicon Valley, Sam Liccardo, and Districts 3 + 7, and the City of San Jose!
This afternoon HomeFirst CEO Andrea Urton and Board Chair Scott Lefaver helped unveil the Bridge Housing Communities (BHC) prototype this afternoon with San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo, Director of Housing Jacky Morales-Ferrand and Habitat for Humanity East Bay/Silicon Valley CEO Janice Jensen!
The hope is to bring 80 new "tiny homes" to San Jose for a 2019 pilot program.
