Chris Dubon and Nikole Kosier have a new son and an affordable apartment at Trestle Glen family apartments, near Colma BART. Chris recently graduated from college, and longed to return to his home in South San Francisco.
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.
Bridge Housing, in partnership with the County of San Mateo, celebrated the grand opening of Trestle Glen family housing during Affordable Housing Week, on May 13, 2010.

Rents range from $403 to $1,400 per month.
