The housing affordability and availability crisis will not be addressed without our concerted effort to mobilize the entire county into concrete action. The first step in this mobilization is to announce the presence of the new Housing Advocacy Network - which Smart Solutions to Homelessness belongs to along with 35 other community organizations - and to insist that our local elected officials commit to taking specific steps to address the housing crisis for working families and vulnerable populations this year.
It's time to activate the countywide Network. So we invite you to visit our new
ACTION NETWORK site and use the site's tools to send a message to your local elected officials. It takes just a minute to sign up on the
ACTION NETWORK site and the site makes it very simple to send a message our local officials.
Please take action today. And then stay with us in the months ahead as we advocate for constructive solutions. A positive future for thousands of Santa Cruz County residents depends on you and the other participants in the Network.
