Their Mission Statement

Housing Long Beach works to improve, preserve and increase the supply of affordable housing for the wellbeing of Long Beach residents through community organizing, policy work and systems change.

Summary of Impact

The City of Long Beach, CA is a diverse and growing metropolis with a crisis of poverty and limited housing options for its low-income residents.   With the largest port in the Western hemisphere, one of the most diverse populaces in the US, and a rapidly growing immigrant population, Long Beach has both unique and common challenges to many US cities – the challenges of creating healthy communities with safe and decent housing options for all sectors of the economic spectrum.   Some of the issues facing Long Beach residents in their fight for decent housing for their families are as follows: • 43% of LB renters spend more than 35% of their income on rent. • Over ¼ of LB residents spend more than ½ their income on rent. • 1 in 5 LB renters lives in severely overcrowded housing, forcing families to choose between rent, food, medicine and clothing for their children. Overcrowded housing causes unsafe and unhealthy living conditions and can lead to infectious and chronic diseases, injuries, poor childhood development and even decreased life expectancy.  • Overcrowding negatively impacts children’s education because it leaves them without space to complete their homework, and results in increased school absences as a  result of increased illnesses.    ·      Housing costs currently require an individual to earn an annual income of approximately $45,200 (or a wage of $21.73 an hour) to afford a two-bedroom rental unit in the 90802 zip code of Long Beach. The California minimum wage is only $8.00/hour. • In 2007, the City reported that it was far behind in meeting its affordable housing production goals.  The City reported that:  It had produced only 29% of very low income units needed, only 17% of low income units needed, 20% of moderate income units needed. ?During the same time, the City produced over 837% of market rate units needed, leading to too much housing that people can’t afford. • Long Beach must produce 5,440 low- and moderate-income units by 2014 to meet the housing needs of its residents.
