Bank of America contributes $10,000 to Peoples’ Self-Help Housing

Central Coast, Dec. 21, 2015 – Bank of America recently presented Peoples’ Self-Help Housing (PSHH) with a $10,000 check in recognition of the award winning nonprofit’s 45th Anniversary in 2015.

Founded in San Luis Obispo in 1970, Peoples’ Self-Help Housing has expanded to Santa Barbara and Ventura counties, with nearly 1,200 self-help homes completed and over 1,600 rental units developed. PSHH continues to strive to fulfill its mission to provide affordable housing and programs leading to self-sufficiency for low-income families, seniors, veterans, and other special needs groups.

“Donations like this have helped Peoples’ grow and continue building quality affordable housing for hard working families as the demand for affordable housing has increased throughout the Tri-Counties,” said PSHH CEO/President John Fowler.
PSHH kicked off its 45th Anniversary year in April with a luncheon at the Madonna Inn in San Luis Obispo and held its 45th Anniversary Gala Dinner & Auction, the Central Coast Taste of Hope, at the Santa Barbara Historical Museum on Nov. 13. For more, visit
