2017 Affordable Housing Week!
10/19/17 – 10/28/17

Get ready for a week of community events, panel discussions, grand openings, tours, workshops, and more! Once each year, community organizations focused on housing issues sponsor events through Santa Cruz County to engage local residents, housing and service providers, advocates, and government officials seeking solutions to our housing crisis.
