New housing for farmworkers to open this month
Guadalupe Court, a new affordable housing unit for farmworkers and their families, will open this month at 4202 11th St. in Guadalupe. It is a project of Peoples’ Self-Help Housing, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year.
“The 38 rentals include four one-bedroom units that are 597 square feet and rent for $1,003 to $1,338 a month; 22 two-bedroom units that are 787 square feet and rent for $803 to $1,606 and 12 three-bedroom units that are 1,025 square feet and rent for $928 to $1,857,” said John Fowler, president and CEO of PSHH.
“Tenants will pay only a portion of the rent, approximately 30 percent of their monthly income.”
Applicants must work in agriculture or be retired from agriculture and be a U.S. citizen or legal permanent resident of the United States.
“The agricultural jobs they can hold include harvesting produce, produce quality checkers, transporting produce and working on irrigation. The housing is not limited to those who work in the fields,” said Mr. Fowler.
Any questions can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or answered by phone at 805-249-2040.
Peoples’ Self-Help Housing is the longest serving nonprofit housing organization on the Central Coast of California, according to Mr. Fowler.
“We support low-income families, farmworkers, seniors and veterans and provide welcoming environments for those living with disabilities and for the formerly homeless,” said Mr. Fowler. “Along with building and managing beautiful and accessible neighborhoods, we offer a range of services to promote health, well-being and career success.
“At PSHH, we build so much more than housing. We build resilient neighborhoods, places residents are proud to call home.”
