Homelessness & Housing


Hayward has been responsive to the needs of the unhoused by building the Navigation Center and by bringing the Downtown Streets Team to Hayward. Despite these positive steps, more work is needed to successfully address the problem. We cannot let businesses just fend for themselves when it comes to cleaning up storefronts and parking lots after people have been living there. There must be a collaborative solution.  I’m committed to finding one. 


Everyone needs housing they can afford. However, what is considered “affordable” is still beyond the reach of many Hayward residents. I will work to find solutions to our housing deficits that are customized to Hayward, housing that creates livable, walkable communities with access to parks, jobs, shopping and transportation alternatives.

Senior Housing and Services

Many seniors have been isolated throughout the pandemic, and services such as congregate meal programs have not resumed. To keep seniors healthy and in safe, stable housing, we need to prioritize support services that go directly to those in need, such as at-home wellness checks and food and prescription delivery.
