    With the efforts of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan along with their Chan-Zuckerberg Initiative charity organization, San Francisco's "housing crisis" will finally be mended. The couple's philanthropic actions led them to donate $3.6 million to fund Community Legal Services in East Palo Alto and Terner Center for Housing Innovation means to finally give solution for individuals and families with residential issues.

    According to Builder Online, Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan's charitable ideas can really help a lot of San Francisco residences. At the moment, "housing crisis" is really rampant in the area where individuals and families are either evicted or displaced from their home because of the current expensive housing expenses today.

    The Chan Zuckerberg Initiative which is the couple's charity organization sent $3.1 million to assists people with legal or economic housing concerns. The same report also said that the money can make them hire additional five full-time lawyers for it now, notably, there are quite a number of citizens in need of their services but they really have limited people for it before.

    While, an additional $500,000 was also given by Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan to Terner Center for Housing Innovation at UC Berkeley. The aim of the donation is to help out with research and all; they are the body concerned for creating a possible less-expensive answer to the current "housing crisis."

    "[The grants] will support those working to help families in immediate crisis while supporting research into new ideas to find a long-term solution," Policy and Advocacy for the Initiative President David Plouffe say as quoted on the Inhabitat. "A two-step strategy that will guide much of our policy and advocacy work moving forward," he added.

    In all, Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan's effort on helping others is not a one-way donation. It may take some time before the fruits of labor to appear on San Francisco's "housing crisis" but their presence will continue to inspire others.
