Social & Housing Advancement Committee

PCA played a vital role in the development and fundraising efforts to create the Human Services Campus, a critical component in the city’s efforts to aid the families and individuals in need of services and housing.

The Social & Housing Advancement (SHA) Committee was formed in 2019 to regularly convene PCA members to coordinate efforts and collectively determine what’s next.
