At this month's HEART (Housing Endowment And Resgional Trust) meeting, I was elected as Secretary to the Board by my colleagues. I am honored.
HEART began in 2003 as a public/private partnership among the cities, San Mateo County, business, nonprofit, education, and labor to create more affordable housing opportunities in the county. HEART meets critical housing needs in San Mateo County by raising both public and private funds. To date, HEART has received over $14 million in funding gifts and pledges, and invested $12.4 million to fund over 950 affordable homes and loans to first time home buyers with limited income.
