Housing is critical to the success of our families & youth
Many local families and older foster youth impacted by trauma are forced to move away from their home communities with little to no support due to a lack of available affordable housing here in San Luis Obispo County. FCNI is committed to ensuring that these families are not only provided safe and affordable housing in our community, but that they also receive vital support services to help them heal and become self-sufficient.
on average, an hourly wage of no less than $30 but more often $45 is required to afford a two-bedroom apartment in SLO County
40% of local households pay over 40% of their income for housing costs
locally, an average renter earns just $15 to $18 an hour, indicating that affordable rent for a single earner should be under $1,000 per month
