I am a single parent building my dream home with the help of Peoples' Self-Help Housing Corp. From the very beginning they were incredibly helpful and sincerely cared for me and my family. I never had a moment where they didn't keep me informed about where I was in the process and what was coming next. They are always there when I have a question. From the office staff to the Construction Supervisors to the CEO, they are all wonderful people. My supervisor, Joe, is always available to help, giving guidance or just listening. He taught me how to measure, how to use different types of saws and power tools. I feel confident and empowered by this process. I know that if I can build a house, I can do just about anything. This is possible because of the dedication of the amazing staff at PSHHC!

How did you find this group?

My parents also built their home through PSHHC in 1985. They are great at advertising for this program!

What, if any, change in your life has this group encouraged?

I am more confident and community minded than i used to be. I now feel that I would volunteer to build other houses or even work for PSHHC someday. I have valued and loved this whole experience and would love to be able to pass that along to others. I even created a blog so that others could see what it's really like to do be part of this.

People's Self Help Housing is one of the few options our community has for high quality housing affordable to low income residents, both rentals & home ownership. It, however, goes well beyond building housing; People's builds communities. It recognizes that many low income families sometimes face emergencies that threaten their ability to stay in their homes. People's is there for them. The home ownership, sweat equity program is often the only way low income families can become home owners. As the neighbors join together to build their homes People's gives the technical expertise to build the building. As importantly they build relationships that will create a strong and safe community for years to come. People's truly does live its mission to provide housing and services leading to self sufficiency for its clients.
