For years, Pilar has been a strong advocate in our community for real solutions to the housing and homelessness crises. She knows that the Sacramento politicians have failed us with homelessness policies that waste taxpayer dollars without getting anyone off the streets and into permanent housing. That’s why she would first increase housing units, like the permanent housing she helped create in her neighborhood, and then provide people with needed services to help get on their feet and prevent others from falling into homelessness. When it comes to housing solutions, Pilar supports an all-of-the-above approach to housing that helps people afford to live in the communities where they work. She supports building more housing that people can afford, first-time homebuyer programs, and rental assistance and eviction protections for those who need it most.
