PSL is an all-volunteer, grassroots organization. The success of our group lies in the hands of our members. In order to get the most out of PSL, it is imperative that members take an active role in planning events, contributing to workshops, and share their knowledge and expertise with other members.

Information: http://www.neighborworks.org/

NeighborWorks America creates opportunities for people to live in affordable homes, improve their lives and strengthen their communities.

We are an organization that cares deeply about affordable housing and community development and the people who benefit from them. Their safety and wellbeing is why we come to work in the morning and why we put in long hours and years of service.

To be successful at this work, there is simply no substitute for the reach, breadth and know-how of the NeighborWorks network – more than 240 of the nation’s best community development organizations – and the support structure that we have built over more than 35 years.

We build the skills, supplement the resources and amplify the reach of these organizations so they can build more houses, empower more individuals and transform more communities than they would be able to do on their own.
