Join Us For Our Annual Celebration: 
Uniting for Housing Justice"!

Saturday, Dec. 3, 2022

2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

at the First United Methodist Church of Pasadena

500 E. Colorado Blvd

Pasadena CA

Music, refreshments, and inspiring stories of how Making Housing and Community Happen is addressing the housing crisis in Pasadena and beyond through affordable housing.



As we complete our fourth year as a nonprofit, we have lots to celebrate, such as our Safe Parking program, launching the first Community Land Trust in the San Gabriel Valley, successfully rezoning religious land for affordable housing in Pasadena, and expanding the number of churches to 65 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.

If you’d like Bert Newton to speak about our work or rent control at your church, and take on offering in support of our efforts,  or if you have a logo and text to include with your contribution, contact
