Open Letter to San Mateo County “Movers and Shakers” In Order to Get More Housing for the Disadvantaged

 

To: Housing Agencies for the Disabled and Elderly

County of San Mateo, California

Re: 2nd Introductory Letter & Survey

Dear Housing Coordinators:

 

Last December, I wrote to a number of municipal housing coordinators and received only one response. Again I ask for your prompt action in this regional housing matter.

 

In the future, I would like to hear of more about housing opportunities for the disabled in-need. Our regional unemployment is in double digits and the unemployment rate for disabled Americans exceeds 70%, therefore I believe a focus is needed to both help these people find both housing and jobs.

 

I am one of the lucky peninsula disadvantaged citizens with a place to live and the where-with-all to continue looking for a work assignment allowing an accommodation.

 

You have been identified as one of the more effective city/town housing assistance offices. I trust you not only know the growing needs but also understand how to make things happen.

 

     Would you please send your ideas to: P. O. Box 620928, Woodside, California?  One idea is to set up a charitable trust fund. Another idea is to ask wealthy faith/church-based organizations to pledge financial assistance.

 

The Board of Supervisors Office has informed me that the county has a ten-year plan to address affordable housing. We cannot wait until 2020.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

 

David A. Dailey
