Community News

PLPOA encourages all owners who are able to support RISE to consider doing so. However, please note that RISE’s solicitation is directed to the general public, and some of their proposed transitional housing options are not permitted within PLPOA. While we share this opportunity to help, we do not endorse housing types that violate PLPOA land use codes, such as garage apartments and basement studios.

Provide a SafeHome for Families in Crisishttps://www.riseaboveviolence.org/transitionalhousing

​Housing is a major step in stabilization. Victims face the same barriers such as rising housing costs and low availability of long-term housing, but their violent situations put them at a great need to find stable housing and safety as soon as possible. 

Rise is looking for owners to house individuals or families for an interim of 1 -3 months. The following accommodations are great options for transitional housing:
– Mother-in-Law Suites
– Basement Studios
– Garage Apartments
– Unlived in Spaces 
– Short-Term Rentals
