We uplift and amplify the voices of our community to protect and preserve existing housing.

Our housing advocacy goal is to protect and preserve the existing housing supply in our neighborhoods. To do so, Nuestra Casa is uplifting and amplifying the voices of our Spanish-speaking and immigrant community. 

With the support of our Promotoras, our Housing Program Coordinator organizes and empowers community residents of East Palo Alto, Belle Haven (eastern Menlo Park), North Fair Oaks, and Redwood City. They help residents take ownership of their advocacy abilities and ensure the inclusion of low income and immigrant communities in critical discussions and policies. 

For specific information about housing resources and support, please check Community Legal Services of East Palo Alto and Legal Aid Society of San Mateo County.

Campaign Updates

CA COVID-19 Rent Relief

Haven’t been contacted about your CA COVID-19 Rent Relief application? We know it’s hard to wait for much-needed relief, but the state of California is reviewing your application and will notify you of status changes on your account. Be sure to check your email for follow-ups from your case manager and log into your account for status updates.

Tenants Association

Working with our partners, we are forming and supporting a Tenants Association where there are building-wide evictions, rent increases, or health and safety issues. We conduct housing leadership & advocacy training workshops, and our Promotoras provide tenant education to residents via one-on-one interactions. To get involved, contact us.

Anti-Displacement Efforts

Nuestra Casa is part of a larger coalition of organizations working on anti-displacement efforts in our community. Together, we advocate for policy changes to support more affordable housing for our community and hold developers accountable for local affordable housing requirements. We make sure our voices are heard during the planning phase of building renovation/rehabilitation and new construction projects.
