Research has shown that when families have safe, stable and affordable homes, they are better able to find employment, achieve economic mobility, perform better in school, and maintain better health.
While GSFA's main focus is to provide financial assistance programs to help Californians purchase homes and/or make energy efficiency improvements to properties, GSFA also engages in philanthropic endeavors, when feasible, to create and maintain strong communities.
GSFA has provided over $3.5 million in emergency disaster assistance to address the impact of forest fires on California residents. The funds were provided to assist residents with temporary housing as well as rebuilding or obtaining of future long-term residences.
The initial shock and damage from fires is tremendous, but like any crisis, the long-term effect upon survivors and the entire community can be long-lasting. Thousands of California residents have been displaced by fires due to destroyed or damaged residences in recent years. Many residents suffer loss of income as well, which can impair their ability to obtain or maintain housing as a direct result of various fires.
