The Diverse Housing Working Group (DHWG) is a community-based effort to engage and educate local organizations and individuals about the need for additional diverse housing resources in Albany. We recognize that a strong community includes people from all walks of life and income levels.
All are invited to join our group.
We meet monthly on the 2nd Tuesday at 5:30 pm (new time) 1319 Solano Avenue / The Church on the Corner
