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

Rating: 5 stars  

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!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

over the past year, I have spent every weekend building my home and the home of 9 others. We are building friendships, confidence and a community!

Very Well

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?


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.

Role:  Client Served & I am an owner/builder in the Terebinth Lane housing development.
