Did you know that one in five children in California go to bed hungry each night? In sad fact, children facing hunger are twice as likely to repeat a grade in elementary school. Sixty-two percent of our teachers say children in their classrooms are coming to school hungry.

 

Food insecurity can look like many things — empty cupboards or having to choose between paying the electric bill or buying groceries. The fact is, hunger results from poverty, not food scarcity, and in the struggle to balance the need for food with other basic necessities, stable food access is often blocked for low-income families.

 

As you well know, housing needs have been thrust into the forefront of our news. For every homeless person you see on the street, there are thousands more you don’t see – men, women, teens and children who struggle every day just to survive. At American Family Housing, we give our neighbors what they so desperately need: the opportunity to live in affordable, stable housing so they can have a better life.

 

American Family Housing (formerly known as Shelter for the Homeless) is a nonprofit organization (Tax ID #33-0071782) that provides a continuum of housing and services to ensure long-term housing stability. Incorporated as a non-profit in 1985, American Family Housing commenced acquiring and rehabilitating affordable rental housing properties in 1992. We have acquired and rehabilitated 62 housing sites, of which we currently own and manage 52 sites with 267 housing units in three southern California Counties: Orange, Los Angeles, and San Bernardino.
