The Peoples’ Self-Help Housing’s (PSHH) team has been working diligently over the past year to build a beautiful, new property in Guadalupe. Guadalupe Court will provide much-needed affordable, supportive housing for those working in agriculture throughout the Central Coast. With construction coming to an end in the next month, PSHH is excitedly preparing to welcome these farmworker households into their new home. 

“We are so proud to bring more quality, affordable housing to the city of Guadalupe,” said John Fowler, President & CEO of PSHH. “Guadalupe Court is one-of-a-kind and will be the perfect place for farmworker families to call home.”

Guadalupe Court is comprised of 38 brand new rental units (1, 2, and 3-bedroom). Amenities include a spacious outdoor courtyard, onsite laundry facilities, a barbecue area, playground, and community center. This property is innovative as it will be the first Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Platinum building in the city and will provide wrap-around services for its residents with an after-school education program and compassionate, onsite, licensed social workers. 

Units are still available for Guadalupe Court and applications can be picked up from Riverview Townhomes, located at 230 Calle Cesar E. Chavez, Guadalupe, CA. You can also request an application by email at [email protected], online at pshhc.org/new-housing, or over the phone at (805) 249-2040. Questions regarding the application process and eligibility can be sent to [email protected] or (805) 249-2040.

If you know someone who may benefit from living at Guadalupe Court, refer them and you will receive an $800 gift-card benefit! Referrals can be submitted to [email protected] or (805) 249-2040. The eligible applicant must move in by September 1, 2020 in order to receive the benefit. 

For more information, visit pshhc.org/new-housing and visit the PSHH YouTube Channel for a special virtual tour of the property – including an exclusive look at one of the units!

Farm workers, transient or year-long, should be housed on the employers acerage just as military people are housed on bases where they work. More convenient and congenial (in their off hours) for the workers and a cost-of-business to their employers. Otherwise the community in general is subsidizing the owners of the businesses.

I am pretty happy with this sort of thing but I do not understand or support the idea (reported elsewhere) that relatives of farm workers will be eligible for this housing. That is a recipe for a bad future. If this information is incorrect please let us know.

Why would they offer an $800 gift-card for referring applicants? Can they not easily find tenants for this “much-needed affordable” housing? This seems very odd to me. What am I missing?
