Our Mission and Vision
The San Francisco Housing Action Coalition (SFHAC) is a member-supported nonprofit that advocates for the creation of well-designed, well-located housing, at all levels of affordability, to meet the needs of San Franciscans, present and future. We get smart housing policy enacted by bringing the housing community together and supporting good projects and legislation at City Hall.
We have an organizational goal to ensure the City produces 5,000 new homes annually. We will achieve this through public awareness and education, changes in current housing policy, placing our seal of approval for projects at the Planning Commission all while being the venue for different communities to discuss housing needs and solutions in San Francisco.
The SF Housing Action Coalition is a fiscal project of Greenbelt Alliance, a northern California non-profit focused on anti-sprawl and environmental protection.
