Central Coast, CA, June 9, 2021 – This week, People’s Self-Help Housing (PSHH) is participating in the nationwide awareness campaign ‘NeighborWorks Week’.

In recognition of NeighborWorks Week PSHH have produced a new video highlighting efforts by their internal IDEA Commission. The IDEA (Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Action) Commission is a staff-led effort to ensure advancements, promote opportunities, and hear all voices on issues related to inclusion, diversity, and equity that affect the organization. The video highlights how the commission is helping to build strong communities through intentional action and support from organizations like NeighborWorks America.
