Help Protect Affordable Housing. Join Us at Lobby Day!

Affordable housing in the City of Los Angeles is in danger! The proposed Community Care Facilities Ordinance threatens to eliminate affordable housing options for thousands of low income households in the city. The CCFO restricts shared housing in single family neighborhoods, an option almost 50,000 Angelenos use to make housing affordable. This puts thousands of people at risk of homelessness.

What can you do to stop the CCFO? The majority of Los Angeles City Councilmembers are currently undecided on the CCFO. However, the ordinance is coming up for a vote soon. This Thursday, January 10th from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., housing advocates will be organizing a “Lobby Day” to reach out to councilmembers and ask them to take a stance against the CCFO.

WE NEED YOUR HELP. Please join us as we visit Los Angeles councilmembers at City Hall and ask them to protect affordable housing in the City of Los Angeles. If you are able to spend the entire day, or just a couple of hours, visiting your representatives, please email Alisa Orduña at aorduna@unitedwayla.org.

Everyone has the right to a home. Stop CCFO!
