With help from HEART, Glenn and his family bought a home in San Bruno—next door to his parents. They had been looking to buy a home for four years, but were always outbid by investors offering cash until they discovered the conforming loan package from HEART and Meriwest Mortgage.
Thanks to you we reached our $3M campaign goal, and met our $10K challenge grant. With your support, HEART raised $60K, A big thank you to keynote speaker, Steve Westly, who spoke about investing in green buildings, lead sponsor Borel Private Bank & Trust Co., and to all of our presenters and participants.
Before dawn I joined 244 other volunteers and homeless folks in San Mateo County to go count people living in the streets. We joined thousands across the county in conducting a bi-annual census of people without homes. Since I live in San Bruno and wanted to get to know my town and its residents better, I went to the Safe Harbor Shelter in South City for training and to meet my partner David Sharp, a resident of his Ford Taurus who lives at a local fast food parking lot at night in South City.
