Review for Peoples Self-Help Housing, San Luis Obispo, CA, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

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.
