Making Housing and Community Happen (MHCH)
I am Jill Shook, the Executive Director of Making Housing and Community Happen (MHCH). We at MHCH so appreciate your partnership with us. Especially during this time of pandemic and economic challenges. During this scary and uncertain time, we are doing our best to ensure that everyone has access to decent, affordable, and safe housing.
Your donation will go towards our goal of raising $25,000 before Jan. 1 as part of our "There's No Place Like Home" campaign, so please give now. We also invite you will join our annual celebration, which will take place online this year Dec. 3-5. For more info, go to:
Thank you! Thank you for your generosity! We welcome one-time donations of any amount. We also hope you will also consider becoming a monthly sustaining partner as we diligently seek to address the severe housing crisis.

We use a four-pronged approach to address the
growing homeless and housing crisis:
One-day Housing Justice Institutes.
Educational initiatives such as our monthly GPAHG meetings, advocacy trainings and other public events.
North Fair Oaks Empowerment Initiative.
Affordable/Supportive Housing Advocates (ASHA)
The Congregational Land Committee was created to assist churches in exploring the feasibility of using some their property to build affordable housing, often at no cost to the church.
North Fair Oaks Empowerment Initiative. Listening to and organizing around the community’s stories, dreams and concerns; developing leaders able to equip other leaders, leaders who see and feel the pain, visualize the community and church assets, and who are able to establish appropriate partnerships, such as affordable housing developers, and other nonprofits like LA Voice.
