Or join one of our committees, which focus on program areas and include board members and community members: 

  • HOUSING Committee—support our transformative housing programs that provide permanent affordability for tenants, including development of new housing and refurbishment/management of Holly courts and Alemany public housing sites
  • COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT Committee—support strategic planning, designing, and implementing community engagement programs, including public safety meetings/initiatives, special events, and the annual Bernal Community Congress
  • FIESTA Committee—plan the annual Fiesta on the Hill, including recruiting sponsors and brainstorming theme and activities

What a day it was! Great music, local artisans,
​food, family friendly activities, unique booths... Everyone agrees that the highlight was the noontime Costume Parade and Marching Band!
