People’s Self-Help Housing

The Dana Reserve includes an improved land donation to People’s Self-Help Housing for approximately 104 low-income units. 


Service is at the heart of our organization. For our current 10,000 residents who call People’s Self-Help Housing home, it comes in the form of attractive neighborhoods, affordable rents or mortgages, access to social workers, and a vibrant education program. 

Our service comes in many forms. Perhaps unknowingly to you, your bookkeeper arrived to work refreshed from a good night’s sleep because their PSHH home is quiet and safe. And maybe your dental appointment was on time because the journey to work for the front desk staff was short. Possibly your elderly friend received compassionate care from a nursing student who graduated top of their class because of support from our dedicated educators.

Perhaps your home increased in value because you and your neighbors advocated for the building of a PSHH property in your neighborhood. We serve many constituents, the environment by reducing polluting commutes, the economy through the infusion of millions of permanent investment dollars, and the employer because affordable housing attracts good local workers.
