Year One Update
It’s hard to believe Housing 1000 is a year old this month. Twelve months ago, we didn’t even know this was possible. But your support this year has produced some amazing results since Registry Week.
Mike Wasserman Interview
“The Housing 1000 Registry Week was such an eye-opening experience,” says Mike Wasserman of the County Board of Supervisors. “It really raised my awareness of the enormity of the problem.” Mike has a head for numbers and a heart for people. The current Supervisor of District 1 of Santa Clara County works to advance Housing 1000’s mission through his expertise and leadership in our community.
The Long Road Home: Meet Richard
When Richard was found by the Housing 1000 team, he was living in a broken wheelchair behind a gas station off of Monterey Highway in San Jose. After 20 years of homelessness, Richard had numerous medical, health and mobility issues.
CTA Showcase & Volunteer Appreciation Event
On May 10th at WestGate Church, Community Technology Alliance (CTA) celebrated our community’s hard work and dedication with entertainment, light refreshments, a raffle, an “Innovation Showcase” and a keynote address by County Supervisor Mike Wasserman. Through the four stations of the Innovation Showcase, guests were able to explore the innovative ways our community is harnessing the potential of technology to prevent and end homelessness.
