Venice Community Housing

Creating strong and inclusive communities

Venice Community Housing believes we must challenge root causes of housing injustice and homelessness and actively confront all forms of racism in order to ensure equitable communities with access to healthy, safe, and affordable homes for all.

VCH impacts the lives of over 1,200 individuals each year

In order to ensure lasting impact, VCH recognizes the necessity to impact public policy and focus on systemic change. To that end, we participate in a wide range of advocacy issues that align with our mission. VCH has built on our long-established presence in Venice and commitment to serving the interests of low income people to advocate for local, state and federal policies that sustain vibrant and diverse communities.

“What they’re doing is a beautiful thing, and I hope they reach everybody who’s willing to work with them…It’s all like an interwoven net that catches you and prevents you from ever going back out there again.”
