Yo Gabba Gabba! Remote

This morning bright and early there was a party in partner homeowner Amanda Jordan's home. KTLA's Allie Mac Kay was live to get the scoop on how our Yo Gabba Gabba! dream room came to be. D-I-Y designer, Holly Westhoff, was also on hand to show parents how they can recreate the room with fun, easy and affordable projects. It is no surprise, however, that the stars of the show were Muno, Foofa and Brobee who kept the party going all morning long!

If you missed it, you can still catch the segments in the 5 o'clock hour, 6 o'clock hour and 7 o'clock hour!

Long Beach Dedication

Last weekend we celebrated the completion of six more affordable homes in Long Beach, as well as the new partner homeowners!

These six homes were rehabilitated thanks in part to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Neighborhood Stabilization Program2 (NSP2) and are also part of our Long Beach Revitalization Initiative (LBNRI). In total, the LBNRI will provide 29 low-income Long Beach families (earning 50 percent or less of the area median income) with the opportunity to purchase an affordable home with a zero-percent interest mortgage. We have also committed to giving each adult family member an extensive homeowner education and continued support on a case-by-case basis to ensure that they are successful homeowners.

Again, congratulations to the new homeowners:
