People’s Self-Help Housing is Now Serving in Four Counties

As the year comes to a close, People’s Self-Help Housing (PSHH) extends immense gratitude to the communities, partners and philanthropists who work together in support of the organization.

As the need has grown, so has People’s Self-Help Housing. Now operating in four counties, the fifty-three-year-old nonprofit daily serves over 5,000 residents who live at its 56 properties and is proud to have helped a similar number of people build their own homes.

In support of these families, seniors, veterans, those coming out of homelessness and people living with disabilities, PSHH has launched its 2023 Appeal.

“Thank you to all our supporters,” says CEO & President Ken Trigueiro, “through your expertise, generosity and commitment you have made our mission possible. “

A PSHH neighborhood provides so much more than just a place to live.  Supportive and educational services are available to all residents free of charge. In addition, access to a network of community resources is facilitated through a compassionate corps of social workers, educators, and onsite property management teams.

Anyone wanting to make a difference in the lives of PSHH residents can make their gift at As an example of how donations will immediately make an impact, a gift of $100 funds a homebuyer workshop for a future owner-builder; $500 provides financial relief for residents facing emergency needs.
