GENERAL MEMBERSHIP


Housing First Solano General Membership is open to all community members. If you have questions or wish to join, please send an email to admin@capsolanojpa.org.

More than 1,100 people in Solano County currently experience homelessness. Housing First Solano wants to change that. We have a simple mission: find homes for those without. This goal seems simple, but could not be more complicated. High rents to the Bay Area, low housing stock, and a lack of affordable service options prevent many from affording a place to live. Housing First Solano works to solve that problem by connecting housing developers, mental and health service providers, and social services to effectively deliver the kind of help people need at the time they need it.


Housing First Solano is guided by its Governance Charter, available here.  Other Housing First Governance documents include its Written Standards for Service.
