The Nuts and Bolts of Buying a Home -- SOLD OUT

The housing market has changed dramatically over the past many years. Inventory is lower than ever, prices are higher than ever. That said, there are some fantastic, affordable options to buy your first home in the city. Learn to manage the home-buying process as a series of smaller steps, understand who is involved at various points in the home-buying process, calculate how much you can afford and review the mortgage loan application process. In this workshop you will learn about the various homeownership types in San Francisco including Below Market Rate (BMR) units. We will review Federal and City level first time homebuyer assistance programs including the Downpayment Assistance Loan Program (DALP) and The Mortgage Credit Certificate (MCC).

 

This workshop series is approved by the San Francisco Mayor's Office of Housing and offers a certificate in homebuyer education upon completion of the series. Please note, this workshop is 4 hours long, in order to complete the 6 hour workshop requirement you will need to attend either "The Basics of Budgeting and Saving" or "Managing Credit and Debt" here at the Center as well.

Light in the Grove 2017

We invite you to join us at our Light in the Grove fundraising gala on November 30. Always a sell-out, Light in the Grove has been voted best LGBT Gala in the Bay Area. Held on the eve of World AIDS Day, guests experience a moving candlelight reflection in the Circle of Friends, the heart of the Memorial, then walk through our spectacularly-lit Redwood Grove to a beautiful banquet. Inside, guests enjoy cocktails, hors d'oeuvres, and a buffet dinner with special musical and artistic performances.

Light in the Grove’s theme this year is 'Bending the Arc Towards Justice', capturing the spirit of hope, determination and resistance that has been at the foundation of the National AIDS Memorial—and our community’s response to the AIDS pandemic—since the beginning. We are proud to be honoring Senator Mark Leno, a longtime friend of the Memorial and tireless champion for civil rights, the LGBT community and HIV/AIDS organizations, and hope you will join us as we renew our commitment to the fight against AIDS and the battle for social justice.

Venue: National AIDS Memorial Grove in Golden Gate Park at Nancy Pelosi & Boling Green Drive

Our Mission: The National AIDS Memorial Grove, located in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park, is a dedicated space in the national landscape where millions of Americans touched directly or indirectly by AIDS can gather to heal, hope, and remember. Its mission is to provide, in perpetuity, a place of remembrance so that the lives of people who died from AIDS are not forgotten and the story is known by future generations.

When #MeToo is #TooMuch: TRE® for Trauma Support and Self-Care

The recent outpouring of allegations of sexual harassment and sexual assault in Hollywood, the media, and government has been overwhelming. While the #MeToo campaign was intended to break the silence around sexual assault and harassment, for some of us it’s been #TooMuch.

Whether it triggers memories of your own experience, makes you realize that someone you love has been hurt in the past, or just makes the state of the world look a little worse than you realized (and you already thought it was pretty bad), the constant barrage on facebook, twitter, and the news is sapping your resilience and impacting your physical and emotional health. Where can you get the support to regain your ground, balance your nervous system, and find the resilience to keep going in these truly painful times?

Join Shauna Farabaugh, certified somatic sex educator and certified TRE® provider, for a small group introduction to Tension and Trauma Releasing Exercises (TRE®). TRE® is a simple to learn technique that assists the body in releasing long held tension and trauma by safely activating the body’s natural reflex mechanism of shaking or vibrating, which brings the nervous system back into a state of balance, ease, and resilience.

For more information, email Shauna at farabaugh.shauna@gmail.com

Cost of the workshop is $35, and registration is required.  Click here for more information.
