NEW PODCAST: A Reporter's View of Housing

A Conversation with Stephanie Martin Taylor

For more than a decade, Stephanie Martin Taylor has walked the streets of San Francisco and other cities learning and reporting on the housing issues of the Bay Area.

An award winning journalist based in San Francisco, Stephanie recently moved on from her role as an anchor and housing reporter for KQED radio.

She’s talked with real people and heard their personal stories. Stephanie sat down with us recently to share her experiences and stories as a reporter.

We wish Stephanie the best as she transitions to her new role as Communications Director for the Episcopal Diocese of California, where she will continue to be involved in housing and affordable housing issues. She is excited to be part of the solution to solve the housing crisis in the Bay Area.


San Diego Councilmember Alvarez at Coronado

We are grateful to San Diego Councilmember David Alvarez who partnered with Eden to host an end-of-the-year party for the residents of Coronado Terrace in the southern part of San Diego.

Councilmember Alvarez brought words of hope and coordinated a resource fair for the residents to learn more about the community.

Volunteer Spotlight: MONIQUE CHANCELLOR

This month, we spotlight resident volunteer Monique Chancellor of Ashland Village in San Leandro.

Monique is active in her community, looking to help out whenever she sees a need. She volunteered to lead a mobile food pantry for her neighbors, providing much needed food assistance to 75-100 families each month. Her experience with the Alameda County Food Bank has made the mobile food pantry a success!

The new legislative session opened on December 5 for the California State Assembly and State Senate.

Both the Assembly and Senate introduced affordable housing bill packages in advance of Governor Brown's proposed State Budget released in early January and which did not include any new state funding for affordable housing.

February 17 is the deadline for legislators to introduce new bills.

Senate "California Rebuild"
Assembly "Bring CA Home"


Kaitlyn Snyder and Rebekah King of the National Housing Conference recently posted an article, "Housing Is Infrastructure." 

The article appears in NHC's "Open House Blog: Brainstorming Bright Ideas for the Future."
