Mission Statement

The Housing Action Coalition's mission is to advocate for the creation of well-designed, well-located housing that meets the needs of present and future residents of San Francisco. The SFHAC aims to build a strong and diverse coalition of groups united by a shared interest in solving San Francisco' s housing crisis. The objectives of the organization are to: _ Increase housing opportunities for San Franciscans of ALL income levels _ Pursue creative ways to make housing more affordable to a wide range of renters and buyers _ Preserve the city's existing housing stock and boost the amount of new housing that is produced each year _ Use well-designed housing to preserve and enhance neighborhood livability and character _ Make housing more affordable for both renters and buyers _ Promote a range of housing types that serve the diverse needs of San Francisco's residents _ Create or enhance pedestrian- and transit-friendly neighborhoods _ Make more efficient use of under-utilized land _ Reduce suburban sprawl by channeling growth into urban cores and inner suburbs and away from the region's greenbelt _ Improve the jobs/housing balance to reduce commute time and traffic _ Enhance neighborhood commercial vitality by adding housing in or near neighborhood commercial areas _ Collaborate with organizations which share our mission in other counties around the Bay Area

Description

HOUSING/URBAN PLANNING ACTIVIST/INTERN NEEDED You can make a big difference in San Francisco's housing policy! We are a very small non-profit dedicated to advocacy for building housing for San Franciscans of ALL income levels. More specifically, we promote smart-growth, transit-first, new urbanism principles. Our work is intensely political, our successes are hard-won and, for our size, we have a high impact. I need a volunteer to help manage our project endorsement process and other duties.
