WHAT IS THE AFFORDABLE HOUSING COALITION?
The Orange County Affordable Housing Coalition is an association of non-profit housing developers, service providers, advocacy groups, and local government partners working together to provide housing opportunities for all in Orange County. Jackie Jenks and Jennifer Gill represent IFC on the Coalition, and serve on its advocacy and communications committees, respectively. Of particular importance to the IFC community is the urgent need for housing for our neighbors who are living at 30% AMI and below.
Outgoing IFC board governance chair, Jennifer Player, is the Coalition's co-chair. She says, “The people who are the fabric of our community really cannot afford to live in our community. This is why it’s important to have elected officials who know and understand the urgency in finding solutions to house the people who work here at our university, at our hospital, at our small businesses and even our local government.”
