YIGBY (Yes in God’s Backyard) seeks to rapidly activate church land to build affordable housing

A solution for the urgent need for affordable housing in San Diego aligns the mission, physical plant, and revenue needs of communities of faith
YIGBY seeks to address the disastrous housing shortage in San Diego with an innovative plan of building elevated modular housing over parking lots owned by communities of faith.  Communities of faith have space that is often underutilized, assisting families and individuals in need is mission-aligned, and the modular housing will create affordable housing much faster than traditional construction projects.

YIGBY estimates that thousands of units of affordable housing could be built by 2025.  Faith community partners also benefit by gaining sustainable rental revenue on underutilized space.
