A Silicon Valley story
How does a region attract talent to its workforce when the cost of the median single family house is more than $800,000, and rent for a two bedroom apartment is more than $4,000 a month? The Portland region has not seen these types of figures, yet it faces its own housing issues. What can we glean from other regions facing such obstacles?
Please join us for our next Breakfast Forum on *Tuesday, November 14 when we welcome Carl Guardino to the Pacific Northwest. Guardino is said to be one of the most influential people in the Silicon Valley. He is President of the Silicon Valley Leadership Group and one of the founders of the Housing Trust Silicon Valley.
Guardino worked to bring business and community leaders in the bay area together to lessen the disparity between the growing number of jobs and the inadequate supply of housing in the Silicon Valley. The effort paid off. Today the Housing Trust Silicon Valley has raised millions of dollars in voluntary contributions and invested more than $130 million to create 25,000 housing opportunities for workers, families, seniors, and others.
Come hear how this alll evolved.
