Community Foundation Sonoma County commissioned Dr. Manuel to run a series of focus groups to identify and test the various affordable housing messages that can backfire or resonate with our community. Based on these focus groups, Dr. Manuel presented a “Sonoma County Affordable Housing Playbook” that can guide a public will building campaign to support a housing friendly community.
