Resident and Community Organizer Assistant


The San Diego Housing Federation (SDHF) is a San Diego-based nonprofit membership organization that promotes the development of quality affordable homes and community development opportunities for people in need throughout San Diego County. Founded in 1990, SDHF serves as the collective voice of those who support, build, finance, operate, and live in affordable homes in the San Diego region. SDHF achieves its mission through advocacy, resident engagement, coalition-building, public education, and capacity building within the affordable housing community. SDHF also coordinates programs aimed at building capacity and expertise with the affordable housing sector.

An example of SDHFs work is The San Diego Homeless-Experienced Advocacy and Leadership (HEAL) Network, aimed at bringing the voices of individuals with lived experience of homelessness into critical local discourse to advance and inform public policy solutions. The HEAL program launched in April 2019 in partnership with Corporation for Supportive Housing and Alliance for Regional Solutions. The program engages individuals with lived experience into 6-week trainings, organizes their collective policy interests and powers, and connects them to advocacy opportunities at the local level. The HEAL Network is the foundation of our community outreach.
