This fall Peoples’ Self-Help Housing (PSHH) has proudly welcomed 78 new households home to their new affordable housing properties – just in time for the holidays! Guadalupe Court in Guadalupe is home to 38 farmworker families and Sierra Madre Cottages in Santa Maria is providing 40 units of affordable housing for local seniors. 

“We are thrilled that both properties are fully occupied and residents will be home, safe, and settled just in time for the holidays,”  said Anna Miller, Chief Operating Officer of Peoples’ Self-Help Housing.

Sierra Madre Cottages is conveniently located near transportation, neighborhood services, and recreational opportunities and provides residents with a community center, library, garden, and onsite supportive services. This project also includes energy saving features, including increased insulation, tankless water heaters, and higher HVAC efficiency. 

Guadalupe Court is located near downtown Guadalupe and features an outdoor courtyard and barbecue area, an innovative playground, a computer lab, and state-of-the-art community center. The property is the first Platinum Level ‘Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) building in Guadalupe and has net-zero energy features and a greywater irrigation system.

Peoples' Self Help Housing Welcomes 78 New Households Before the Holidays

Pitmix and Coastwatch are absolutely correct. But don't forget big tech companies and their H1B visas that allow them to bring in hundreds of thousands of otherwise inadmissable workers at hugely reduced salaries to displace US folks who went to school, incurred huge debts and tried to better themselves by doing the right thing. Seemingly it is impossible to get a handle of the many grafts and schemes that money is allowed to pursue, usually with the help of well-intentioned people or a bought legislature. Happy Holidays.
