Driving Change
and Building a
Better Tomorrow

In our 75th year, we have never been more necessary. Affordable housing is
in crisis in California. The Housing Authority of the County of San Joaquin
(Housing Authority), has taken a critical step from the custodian of aging
HUD properties to affordable housing development. Our transformation is
driven by the needs of our residents and our unwavering mission:
to establish healthy, thriving communities in modern, energy-ef cient

apartment homes. The Housing Authority proudly provides rental assistance
and affordable housing for over 6,000 households in San Joaquin County.
We seek opportunities to ful ll community needs through fundraisers,
children’s program facilitators, educational advocates and as an economic
engine in development and property management.

With the help of our local partners, we will continue to invest in what
matters most through the creation and implementation of community
infrastructure in after-school programs, our college scholarship foundation,
housing for people with mental health challenges, educational partnerships
with non-pro t and law enforcement organizations, and of vital importance,
homeless service providers. We are built on the drive and commitment of
our staff, as well as the energy and support of our Board of Commissioners.

Through our dedication and devotion, we have much to celebrate.

This publication provides our residents, stakeholders, employees, and our
county with a recap of our most signi cant events and accomplishments
from our 75th year. Thank you for standing with us as we initiate change to

build an even better tomorrow.

A Look Into
the Future

San Joaquin County, like nearly all of California, is suffering from
an acute need of affordable housing options for its residents.

Our thought leadership in the county is evidenced by an aggressive
development pipeline that includes Mental Health Services Act
(MHSA), Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (VASH), Veterans

Housing and Homelessness Prevention Program (VHHP), Homeless
Emergency Assistance Program (HEAP), and agricultural sources to

meet the diverse housing needs of our communities.

Effectively competing for state and federal resources to ensure the
fair share of capital dollars ow to our county, we will continue to
partner with our cities, county and non-pro ts to increase capacity

and competitiveness. An outside of the box approach brings
creative solutions needed to meet our communities’ complex needs.

It is the Housing Authority’s promise to promote housing stability
for vulnerable populations and economic self-suf ciency by
planning and implementing projects through meaningful
partnerships and innovative thinking.
