FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – Santa Barbara County, CA, July 21, 2022 – People’s Self-Help Housing (PSHH) has received a generous grant award of $7,100 from the City of Goleta. This funding will benefit PSHH’s supportive housing program at properties throughout the area.
The Supportive Housing Program currently provides services to over 1,900 households in three counties through free, confidential case management from onsite service providers. The program also partners with over 70 area agencies connecting PSHH residents with local resources and area wellness programs. These programs include health screenings, counseling, mental health support, food distribution, rental assistance, wellness seminars, and more.
“We are grateful for this funding which will allow us to continue to expand much-needed resources for our residents,” said Rick Gulino, PSHH Director of Neighborhood Development & Resident Services. “This will provide expanded opportunities and broader support to community members throughout the City of Goleta.”
To meet the needs of residents, many of whom are transitioning from years of housing instability, PSHH combines compassionate property management with service-enriched supportive housing. Residents have access to free, confidential, clinical case management and onsite care. The 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 problem, the Supportive Housing Program plays a key role in the return to stability.
