Bank of America recently presented Peoples’ Self-Help Housing with a $10,000 check in recognition of the award-winning nonprofit’s 45th anniversary in 2015.

Founded in San Luis Obispo in 1970, PSHH has expanded to Santa Barbara and Ventura counties, with nearly 1,200 self-help homes completed and over 1,600 rental units developed.

PSHH continues to strive to fulfill its mission to provide affordable housing and programs leading to self-sufficiency for low-income families, seniors, veterans and other special needs groups.

“Donations like this have helped Peoples’ grow and continue building quality affordable housing for hard working families as the demand for affordable housing has increased throughout the Tri-Counties,” said PSHH CEO and President John Fowler.  

PSHH kicked off its 45th anniversary year in April with a luncheon at the Madonna Inn in San Luis Obispo and held its 45th Anniversary Gala Dinner and Auction, the Central Coast Taste of Hope, at the Santa Barbara Historical Museum Nov. 13, 2015.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
