Presented by

Church Land Sheltering Our Most Vulnerable

Mission: YIGBY, or “Yes in God’s Backyard”, is a movement pioneering a new path forward to help houses of worship become part of the solution to San Diego’s housing crisis.

Problem: A lack of affordable housing sites available in many California communities.

Solution: Build affordable housing on church-owned land in partnership with developers and off-site manufacturers to help build affordable housing in a collaborative, transparent, efficient manner.
