Funds to Support

General Support

The General Support fund underwrites the day-to-day operations of People’s Self-Help Housing. For over 50 years, your gifts have helped advance our mission, bring creative solutions to affordable housing development, and create safe, service-enriched places to thrive. At PSHH, we are building so much more than housing – we are building communities residents are proud to call home. Make your generous gift today!

Education Programs

Available to students of all ages, the Camino Scholars program is currently offered at ten on-site learning centers at PSHH properties throughout the Central Coast. This innovative program provides year-round after-school programming, enrichment opportunities, and support and guidance from application through graduation. You can support students by making your generous gift to our education fund today!

Home Ownership

For over 50 years, People’s Self-Help Housing has brought the stability and wealth-building opportunities of home ownership to the Central Coast through the nationally-recognized Self-Help Building Program. Over 1,200 homes later, we are still helping families realize the American Dream! Your gift to this program can help build more opportunities for home ownership on the Central Coast.

Supportive Housing Program

To meet the needs of our residents, many of whom are transitioning from years of housing instability, we combine compassionate property management with service-enriched supportive housing. Residents have access to free, confidential, clinical case management and onsite care. Our team helps build capacity, well-being, personal resiliency, and ensures residents have access to a wide network of regional resources. Whether it’s a small bump in the road or a long-term challenge, your gift can play a key role in a resident’s return to stability.

Resident Assistance Fund

The Resident Assistance Fund has been providing emergency financial support for medical, food and utilities to PSHH residents in deep need for over two decades. Funds are utilized when all other potential resolutions and community resources have been exhausted. Each year, thousands of dollars are distributed to those facing urgent financial emergencies. Support residents today!

Build Her Fund

For five years, the Build Her Fund has been supporting and inspiring women and girls* at People’s Self-Help Housing properties. More than just a commitment to equity and education, it is a practical way to invest in emerging ideas. When you amplify the efforts of girls and women, you not only strengthen them, but strengthen their families, and your communities. Learn more and make your generous gift today and help Build Her!

*The Build Her Fund inclusively supports anyone who self-identifies as female, including women, girls, transgender, intersex, and non-binary individuals.

Housing Service Fund

One in ten homeless adults is a veteran, and of those struggling to find a place to call home, about half are also living with a disability. A roof over a head may give a fresh start, but your help ensures that our veterans get the additional services needed to build mental health, forge physical wellbeing, and move forward. Learn more about the Housing Service Fund and invest in those who have given of themselves in unimaginable ways, by honoring their fortitude and valor with your generous gift today.
