What to know before Housing Hero Awards!


Meet Our Housing Heroes

Robert Rivas | Speaker of the California State Assembly

Robert Rivas, who was sworn-in as Speaker this summer, brings a proven track record of pro-housing leadership to the State Assembly.

In addition to authoring Assembly Bill 2234, the first-ever HAC-sponsored bill to get signed into law, Speaker Rivas also recently voiced his support for one of the most important pro-housing bills in this year’s legislative cycle, Senate Bill 423 (Wiener).




Mission Housing | Affordable Housing Developer

Mission Housing has been a leader in the affordable housing space since 1971. Throughout their history, they’ve remained committed to building and persevering high-quality homes for lower and moderate-income residents who work hard to make a life in the city.

While their legacy alone is worthy of a Housing Heroes Award, we’re honoring Mission Housing for their stalwart efforts to build a 100% affordable housing project in San Francisco’s Westside.



Todd David | Former Executive Director of the Housing Action Coalition

As the former Executive Director of the Housing Action Coalition (HAC), the legacy of Todd’s leadership at HAC is undeniable.

In less than six years, he took the organization to new heights, as we expanded our reach beyond San Francisco to advocate for homes across the Bay Area and California; sponsored — and passed — our first pieces of state legislation; doubled our team’s size; and developed new relationships beyond the traditional homebuilding community.




Bay Area Housing Finance Authority (BAHFA) & the Bay Area Housing For All Coalition (BAHA)

BAHFA is a first-of-its-kind regional housing authority established in 2019 to fund and deliver solutions that address the Bay Area’s chronic housing and homelessness challenges at scale leading with racial equity.

BAHFA is drafting a November 2024 ballot measure that would raise as much as $10-$20 billion in funding for the entire nine-county Bay Area to create and preserve affordable housing.

The Bay Area Housing For All (BAHA) Coalition — which HAC is a proud member of — is spearheading the campaign efforts to get this affordable housing bond measure passed.
