Housing Story

Growing up in central Texas as the daughter of immigrants, relatives who were new immigrants moved in with my family temporarily. My own father experienced housing insecurity when coming to America, and family stories instilled within me that housing is essential for everyone to survive and to reach their full potential. Struggling to find housing in San Francisco as a salaried worker, I knew that there was even less opportunity for immigrants like my relatives and hourly workers.
