House the Bay

House the Bay is a group of housed and unhoused community members who are tired of waiting for Bay Area officials to address the very immediate need for housing, and we are reaching out to our community for financial support! Your donations will go directly towards efforts to acquire shelter for our unhoused neighbors. 

With more empty buildings than there are homeless people in the Bay Area, no one should be homeless, while buildings sit empty.

We all deserve a place to shelter during this pandemic. By refusing to immediately house all homeless people, our local governments have failed Bay Area residents. While our cities drag their feet, our houseless neighbors can’t afford to spend another day outside and at risk. It is up to us to curtail the ever-increasing death toll.
