EBHO brings together community members, public officials, nonprofit housing developers, residents, service providers, planners, professionals, and advocates.  Collectively, we’re building a movement to ensure everyone has a safe, healthy, and affordable place to call home.

Since 1984, East Bay Housing Organizations has been the leading affordable housing advocacy coalition serving Alameda and Contra Costa Counties. EBHO is a member-driven organization working to preserve, protect, and create affordable housing opportunities for low-income communities in the East Bay by educating, advocating, organizing, and building coalitions.

EBHO promotes and preserves affordable housing by:

  • Educating elected and public officials, neighborhood associations, faith-based and community organizations, the business community, and the general public about the affordable housing crisis and its solutions.
  • Organizing affordable housing residents and allies to lead advocacy campaigns and promote policies that create, fund and preserve affordable housing.
  • Building strong coalitions with grassroots community and interfaith groups, labor unions, environmental organizations, advocates for people who are unhoused, and non-profit affordable housing developers to work together and take action.
