Dear Friends,

I am always humbled when I think about how far we’ve come. I’m also proud to share our progress with new and old friends. Among those is Governor Gavin Newsom’s Business, Consumer Services, and Housing Secretary Lourdes Castro Ramírez, whose visionary leadership helped make Homekey sites like Project Legacy possible across the state. She made time in her busy schedule to visit us in Riverside and I thanked her personally for her path breaking work. I was nearly brought to tears seeing how authentically she engaged with some of our clients who shared how important our new campus is to them. She asked one of our clients if he was enjoying living at our new Marsha P. Johnson House. He said, “I don’t like it…I LOVE it!” I beamed with pride.

As you know, this is an important year for us; it’s the year we open the doors to Project Legacy and welcome our clients into transitional housing. We hope you will join us in sponsoring our launch event on June 30th and help us continue to raise critical resources to support our work!

I also had an opportunity to chat with the Inland Empire’s NPR Station about Project Legacy and our work more broadly. It is always a pleasure when I’m able to introduce new folks to our work. 

Take a look below to see what we’ve been up to!

In service, 


Chief Executive Officer
