Can this innovative housing model help solve California’s affordable housing crisis?

Ivette Feliciano:

With the help of the tenant advocacy group Alliance for Californians for Community Empowerment, Sanchez organized seven other neighbors who also had huge rent increases from the same landlord.

In 2018, Oak CLT purchased three of those homes, allowing Sanchez’s family and two other families to stay in the neighborhood.

Across the bay, in 2017, residents of this 40-unit building in San Francisco’s Tenderloin district were facing huge rent increases. The building was not under rent control.

Lorenzo Listana is a community organizer for the residents.

Lorenzo Listana, community organizer: A lot of people here are seniors, you know, working families, housing is important because they work just right in this area.
