This year marks the 40th year anniversary of the Council of Community Housing Organizations (CCHO), which has been leading the affordable housing movement in San Francisco since 1978.  We fight for funding and policies that shape urban development and empower low-income and working-class communities.

As a nonprofit coalition of 25 community-based housing developers and tenant advocates, CCHO (known as “Choo Choo”) crafts actionable public policy and supports resident leadership to create long-term change. We are dedicated to the vision of a San Francisco Bay Area where all residents can afford to live, work, and thrive.

Over the past 4 decades, our coalition has won nearly $6.5 billion dollars for affordable housing, built almost 30,000 affordable homes, created thousands of jobs, and passed meaningful policies to guide housing development, prevent displacement, and stabilize our communities.
