Housing Advocacy

Buena Vista UMC gave birth to Renewed HOPE Housing Advocates in the late 90’s during a critical time addressing the housing crisis in the city of Alameda. In 2000, Renewed HOPE worked with others to obtain an agreement from the city of Alameda to provide 25% affordability on all new housing developments on the former Alameda Naval Base. The first housing development for the naval base was approved in 2016 and will include 200 affordable homes in the 800 unit development. Renewed HOPE is hosted at Buena Vista UMC and continues to advocate for housing needs in the community.
