How Much Does The Housing And Transit Really Cost? New Location Affordability Portal Available

There is more to housing affordability than how much rent or mortgage you pay. Transportation costs are the second-biggest budget item for most families, but to date there hasn't been an easy way for people to fully factor transportation costs into decisions about where to live and work. The goal of the Location Affordability Portal is to provide the public with reliable, user-friendly data and resources on combined housing and transportation costs to help consumers, policymakers, and developers make more informed decisions about where to live, work, and invest.

SB 391: Legislator Outreach Campaign

This is one last thing you can do in 2013 to make for a better 2014!

We are making a final push to reach out to legislators -- while they are in the districts before heading back to Sacramento on January 3rd -- to remind them of the importance of affordable housing to their constituents.  Most of them are having holiday parties, so we can easily take residents or other district community members to talk with them directly.

Tell Your Assembly Member, We At Valley Beth Shalom Support Affordable Housing!

We at Valley Beth Shalom have a proud history of helping the poor and the stranger in our midst. Through our extensive social ministries including our food bank, and monthly feeding programs, we have seen the toll of homelessness here in Los Angeles.
