    SRCEH's 2019 Neighborhood YIMBY Council's Campaign Background Homeless Crisis; Mayor's Challenge & SRCEH's Response ​ Homeless Crisis: Sacramento County has between 7,500 - 10,000 people experiencing homelessness on an annual basis. This includes: 13,000 homeless students, K-12 grade, in Sacramento County school districts- roughly 12% or 1,000 are homeless in the streets or in shelters while 88% are live in doubled up living situations; 3,500 homeless college students at Sacramento State University; 1,000 unaccompanied youth - 40% of whom identify as LGBTQ; 25% of the homeless population are over 50 years of age; 56% are living outside due to lack of emergency shelter and affordable and accessible housing ​ Mayor's Challenge: Mayor Steinberg has challenged each city councilmember to site at least 100 emergency shelter beds in their district, or a combination of shelter beds and tiny homes - for a total of at least 800 new emergency shelter beds to keep homeless people safe. ​ SRCEH's Response: SRCEH knows that City Council members will face a combination of NIMBY [Not in My Backyard]; CAVE [Citizens Against Virtually Everything] and Banana [Build Absolutely Nothing Anywhere Near Anything] mentalities. ​ Our goal is to sign up at least 100 community members in each of the 8 city council districts forming 8 Neighborhood YIMBY Councils - for our 2019 Neighborhood YIMBY Council's Campaign - to educate our city councilmembers that there are hundreds of community members who want to address our homeless crisis with proactive and positive responses and say..... YES! to homeless programs and affordable and accessible housing. ​ Yes! to neighborhood equity, inclusion, fair share and collective responsibility in holding our elected officials accountable ​ Collective Responsibility 5 Campaign Principles Equity Inclusion Fair Share Collective Responsibility Accountability

  • Transforming No to Yes | srceh-

    Transforming "No" to "Yes" HOW TO GUIDE for YIMBY ADVOCATES Myth busting - at public meetings and hearings - challenge the myths about people experiencing homelessness and siting affordable housing with the facts ​ When you first hear of a proposal: Contact the elected official, developer or non-profit who is managing the project and tell them you are are a supporter and ask how you can help ​ Do wide outreach, engage stakeholders and get community leaders engaged ​ Garner media and political support early ​ Be proactive - anticipate concerns and address them early as part of the project development including demonstrating the benefit of the project for your community -- show pictures and conduct tours of high quality homeless programs and affordable housing ​ Communicate with your elected official: call, email, write your elected official - let them know you support the project and are part of SRCEH's Neighborhood YIMBY Council Campaign ​ If there is a Information Meeting and/or Open House- encourage as many supporters as possible to attend; speak up in support at the meeting; challenge those who make discriminatory; inflammatory or offensive remarks ​ Public process: attend the permit meetings and other public forums to express support for the project ​ Approaches to framing the issue; communication and community outreach: + start your communication strategy early in the process + maintain control of the dialogue - take the offensive and frame your project precisely, positively and consistently ​ Communication: emphasize: + good design of project: good design enhances existing neighborhoods and increase values; additionally, well designed housing can revitalize older neighborhoods and set the standard for development in newer neighborhoods. Good design is also compatible with existing neighborhood architecture + good management of project: good management with strict standards for property maintenance as well as professional property management and compliance with local, state and federal regulations ​ Legal perspective: Sacramento City's Non-Discrimination and Equality Municipal Code: "The City of Sacramento is home to people of every sex, race, color, religion, national origin, mental or physical disability, sexual orientation, and gender identity....Sacramento embraces the dignity, humanity and individuality of all people and strives to provide a safe and welcoming environment for residents and visitors of every conceivable background." ​ Ensure that public input and decision-making is transparent Hold your elected officials accountable to their commitments ​ ​ ​
