HEART hosted a breakfast for forty supporters at the newly-opened Trestle Glen family apartments in Colma, next to the BART station. Guests got to meet a resident, Princess S. (second from right) who told the story of her family’s search for affordable housing once their son was born.
The Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG) presented HEART with the 2009 Growing Smarter Together Award in the category of Public/Private Partnerships. Watch the video!
We had a tasty “friendraiser” event just before Valentine’s Day. You can see photos here. Many thanks to Borel Private Bank & Trust Co. for hosting the event at their San Mateo branch! Also, the State contemplates a permanent source of revenue for affordable housing.
