Driving Affordable Housing Bus Tour: San Diego, CA and Riverside, CA


It’s a particular pleasure to be at Grove
Community Church. With leaders of Southern California’s faith-based
community, we had lunch with several of those leaders this afternoon. I’m in California this week as part of our
nation-wide bus tour, Driving Affordable Housing Across America. Each state is a laboratory, and we can take
the really good things and spread them around, and the bad things we can try to get rid of. And during this tour, I’ll be visiting lots
of communities across the country, a wide range of activities, all really focused on
eliminating barriers to creating affordable housing. Now, the faith-based community plays obviously
a very important role. Is working together and using evidence, and
that’s what’s been going on here in San Diego, and that’s why the situation here
is a little different than some of the other places. This is America, by the way, the “Can Do
Attitude.” And that’s what we need to be thinking about,
and in terms of homelessness, in terms of affordability, can we deal with that? Absolutely!
