We want Riverside to be a welcoming community where anyone can thrive.

Our Story

In 2018, a group of Riverside residents got together to advocate for new housing development for low-income families and homeless individuals. Over the past two years, we have seen interest in housing advocacy grow, and the need for housing has grown even more!

Riverside has much to be proud of. We have done more than any city in California to end veteran homelessness through partnerships with the faith community. But new housing that gets proposed still faces unnecessary opposition from people who already have homes. We know that complete communities have housing available at all price points, for all sizes of families, in every neighborhood. So we are joining forces with YIMBY allies from across California to become part of the YIMBY Action Network.

We are looking for leaders who will advocate not only for our neighbors experiencing homelessness, but also for the next generation of Riverside residents who want to, live, work and raise our children here. We believe our differences make us greater.

We are Greater Riverside.

We want a more affordable and sustainable Riverside

We see friends, family, and coworkers priced out of our area. We see sprawl consume acres of wilderness and increase the number of cars on the road. And we see an alternative. We want Riverside to be an affordable and inclusive community. We can make Riverside a place with homes for all, and where you don’t have to have a car to get around.
