At Sacramento Housing Alliance (SHA), we believe housing is a human right. According to the California Budget and Policy Center, 1 in 5 households face severe housing cost burdens, spending more than half of their income toward housing expenses. This means that many of our community members are not living a full and healthy life. People are struggling to survive. Joining the movement for fair and affordable housing means that we all win. For over 30 years, SHA has fought for housing rights and economic justice. Your investment in our work will activate policy change and support affordable housing. Furthermore, it is a commitment that we collectively want to build a future where everyone has access to health, a home, and foster a community of belonging.
To deal with the current crisis and to begin to build the capacity of our organization for the future, our needs are:
Organizational or Individual memberships - Our members reflect a diverse broad base both locally and statewide. They are engaged in efforts throughout the region and at the state and national level educating and advocating for progressive affordable housing and systemic racial equity policies.
We cannot do this work without a broad base of members, joining us to help do this critical work. Our members are concerned individuals and organizations who want to ensure that every single individual in our community has a place to call home.
Donations or Monthly Donors - William Byron Rumford Monthly Donor Circle. Giving monthly provides ongoing support to our racial and social justice work focused on repairing the long history of housing discrimination.
