      Perspectives in Planning

      12:00 to 1:00 PM Friday March 11th

      The speaker series is organized by
      the San Jose State Urban Planning
      Coalition and sponsored by the
      American Planning Association.


      The next in this new series will focus on
      Quality Housing for Very Low Income People (Chris Block is the
      speaker)

      Chris has been involved in affordable housing for over
      15 years in Silicon Valley. He was the Executive Director
      of Charities Housing from its inception through 1999,
      and returned to the position in 2002. Chris also served
      as Executive Director of Good Samaritan Family
      Resource Center in San Francisco and was the first
      Executive Director of the Housing Trust of Santa Clara
      County. He holds a Master's in Counseling Psychology
      and a Bachelor's in Philosophy from the University of
      Notre Dame, and a Real Estate Broker license.
      Chris Block will discuss Pensione Esperanza, a 110 unit
      SRO (single room occupancy) housing development.
      The award-winning project serves very low income
      individuals, and was the first SRO development in
      San Jose in recent memory. He will discuss the
      numerous partnerships that were necessary to make
      this project a reality and describe how formidable
      obstacles were overcome in the development process.

      All events held at
      Associated Students House
      San Jose State University

      The event is free but
      $5 donations are encouraged.

      Refreshments provided.
