Finding affordable housing can be a challenge in the Bay Area. However, there are a number of online resources available to people who are looking to rent, share or buy a reasonably priced place to live. As a helpful guide, the following tabs provide lists of local housing organizations which provide assistance. They are broken down into 4 groups: Affordable Housing, Homebuyer Programs, Housing Advocacy Groups and Other Resources. The goal of many of these organizations listed is the same: to increase access to affordable housing for people of all income levels in the area. The San Mateo Community College District does not endorse any specific website listed.
