Peoples’ Self-Help Housing to Celebrate NeighborWorks Week with Volunteer Opportunities, Open House

From June 7 through June 15 across the country, individuals and families are working to build vibrant communities during NeighborWorks Week. Peoples’ Self-Help Housing is part of this national network of more than 235 nonprofits that create opportunities for people to live in affordable homes, improve their lives and strengthen their communities.

NeighborWorks Week is a weeklong celebration where local volunteers come together to help make neighborhoods healthy, sustainable places to work, play and call home.

The public is invited to join the following volunteer activities and lunch on Saturday, June 7 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the following PSHH affordable housing properties:

» College Park Apartments, 648 North G St. in Lompoc; flower planting and cleanup

» Los Adobes de Maria I, 1026 W. Boone St. in Santa Maria; flower planting and cleanup

» Oak Forest Apartments, 163 S. Elm St. in Arroyo Grande; install a community garden

In addition, at 11 a.m. Sunday, June 8, there will be an Open House and Volunteer Signup at Los Alamos Self-Help Homes, 801 Newman Lane in Los Alamos.

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!
