The California Housing Ecosystem

California is faced with unprecedented challenges: climate change, social inequity, and an acute housing affordability crisis. Prioritizing cross-sector collaboration as we reimagine the way homes and neighborhoods are built will enable us to address these interconnected challenges while also advancing equity, community health, and ecological well-being.

Our Work
