Creating a Future for Home

  • 150 mins

In the film “Home is A Hotel”, a diverse group of San Franciscans strive against systemic forces and a housing crisis with hope and humor in their search for a place to call home. Their search takes them from their 80 sq ft SRO hotel rooms to the Tenderloin and South of Market neighborhoods that support them.

This film provides deep insight into the experiences of families and individuals finding and securing affordable housing. In this program, we ask why it is so hard and what are the housing solutions that work that we can amplify to make the search for home easier (while also acknowledging each solution has its pitfalls and challenges).

Join us for this engaging program and learn more about grass-roots efforts and Bay Area wide affordable housing funding initiatives that are happening right now and need your support.
