Residents at Creekside Gardens, Paso Robles

A note from our CEO, John Fowler
Rolling, rolling, rolling...

The brand new Rolling Hills II affordable housing development in Templeton just broke ground in January, and we're staying busy.

A key ceremony is scheduled in Atascadero. Eleven owner builder families will receive the key to their "American Dream" after a long year of construction work. 

Rehab work will soon start at Valentine Court in Santa Maria, a senior project serving some of the most vulnerable members of our community. Residents will be very happy with the improvements, once this 27 year old development received its "make over".

Our momentum in 2017 is stronger than ever and we see no signs of slowing down. We are immensely grateful and humbled to serve the Central Coast, through creative solutions that add affordable housing opportunities to and for underprivileged communities. 

We are also thankful for your continued support which allows us to do the work we do and enables us to support our residents in becoming more self-sufficient and prosper in life.
Cause for Celebration!

Point in Time - 2017 Homeless Survey
The Point In Time Count is an unduplicated count of sheltered and unsheltered homeless individuals and families across the United States. The count provides a snapshot of who is homeless on a given night. This information is then used to plan local homeless assistance systems and to raise public awareness of homelessness.

Proud to take part this year, was a team from PSHH who were assigned to an area in Santa Maria. To learn more, see  Point in Time Census .
Volunteers Make All the Difference

Getting Started in San Miguel!
With a few welcome days break from the rain, owner-builder families working together were able to pour foundations for two more new homes in San Miguel.

Progress is made quickly through the Self-Help Home Ownership Program; stay posted on these construction projects, change happens fast!

Crisis Fund Provides for Essentials
Can you imagine trying to get through the day with the agony of a toothache but no money to visit a dentist? 

What if you knew you were just hours away from eviction because you were a few dollars short?
