Welcome to Making Housing
& Community Happen!

Uniting for Housing Justice!

Our 4th Annual Celebration on Dec. 3, 2022, was a joyful success!

There was music, refreshments, and inspiring stories of how Making Housing and Community Happen is addressing the housing crisis in Pasadena and beyond through affordable housing. You can watch a livestream of our annual celebration at

To learn more about our work and our celebration, see our newsletter.


As we complete our fourth year as a nonprofit, we have lots to celebrate, such as our Safe Parking program, launching the San Gabriel Valley Community Land Trust; rezoning religious land for affordable housing in Pasadena and other cities; and 70+ churches in So Cal that are seeking our advisement for having affordable housing built on their land.  


Our goal is not only to ensure that affordable housing gets built, but also to build what Dr. King calls the Beloved Community. That's why we call our nonprofit "Making Housing and Community Happen." The theme of this year’s celebration, "Uniting for Housing Justice," is about the partners we work with, such as LA Voice, the Pasadena Tenants Union, Foothill Unity Center, the Clergy Community Coalition, the Interdenominational Ministerial Alliance, the Pasadena Affordable Housing Coalition, and more. 


We can't do our work without our partners, and without your support. Please donate whatever you can afford. All donations are greatly appreciated. Click here to support our work.

Making Housing & Community Happen equips congregations, community leaders, and neighbors with practical tools needed to transform their communities to end homelessness, and to stabilize the cost of housing through education, advocacy, organizing, and advisement.
