Our Goals

What have we achieved so far?

We have organized tenants and neighbors to:

  • Get the word out to the community at large
  • Garner press coverage of this important issue
  • Involve our councilwoman, and other council members in the fight
  • Bring Mission First to the table
  • Help with resettlement
  • Raise funds and resources

We’ve done all this with the ultimate goal of:

  • Stopping the forced eviction
  • Returning the apartments to a livable standard
  • Halting the sale to market-rate developers
  • Keeping the Arvilla as affordable housing, either under Mission First, or another committed non-profit
  • Continuing oversight and accountability for Mission First 
  • Building a larger movement to support affordable housing in the area
