Peoples' Self-Help Housing Properties Recognized for Exceptional Management and Resident Satisfaction

Central Coast, Calif., June 26 - This month, seven Peoples' Self-Help Housing (PSHH) properties received recognition as recipients of the 2019 Distinguished Properties Award.

Receiving gold level of recognition: Pacific View Apartments (Morro Bay), Sequoia Apartments  (Morro Bay), and South Bay Apartments (Los Osos). Receiving silver level of recognition: Casas las Granadas (Santa Barbara), Victoria Hotel (Santa Barbara), Los Adobe de Maria I (Santa Maria), and Schoolhouse Lane (Cambria).

The Distinguished Properties Award is a new PSHH initiative to recognize exceptional property management and resident satisfaction. All 52 properties were eligible for recognition and winners were determined based on a number of factors, including curb appeal, turnaround times for vacant units, health and safety, and the provision of community events for residents. This new accolade will build on PSHH's mission of providing outstanding, supportive, and affordable living environments for all our residents.

"I am immensely proud of our award recipients and the hard work each team had to employ to achieve these results," said John Fowler, PSHH President/CEO. "It is extremely satisfying to know that both our properties and our residents are in such good hands."

With over fifty neighborhoods in three counties, Peoples' Self-Help Housing provides affordable housing for working families, seniors, and veterans, and provides welcoming environments for those living with disabilities, and the formerly homeless. On-site management offer hands-on, caring assistance to over 5,000 residents while maintaining safe and beautiful properties.
