Since 1968 HASLO has been helping people in San Luis Obispo County with housing that fits their budgets and needs. We're always looking for volunteers and new ways to help. Find out how you can contribute!
On September 25, HASLO received a donation from Pacific Western Bank in the amount of $14,750. Scott Smith, Executive Director of HASLO, received the check from Lynda J. Nahra, President of Pacific Western Bank’s Central Coast Region. Also in attendance from HASLO were Ken Litzinger, Finance Director, and Michael Burke, Housing Development Manager. Pacific Western Bank’s staff included Thomas R. Strait, Executive VP and Regional Manager; Carl Dudley, Vice President/Senior Relationship Manager, and Nathan Roddick, Relationship Manager.
The contribution was made in recognition of HASLO’s outstanding contribution to affordable housing and Pacific Western Bank’s commitment to helping HASLO realize that mission.
“We are thrilled with this contribution,” said Scott Smith, HASLO Executive Director. “We will utilize these funds for HASLO programs that assist seniors, struggling families, and veterans.” HASLO provides affordable housing to over 3,000 households each month in San Luis Obispo County.
HASLO was honored at the summer convention of the National Association of Housing and Redevelopment Officials (NAHRO) this July in Tampa, Florida. Moylan Terrace, HASLO's 80 unit homeownership development in San Luis Obispo, received a national Award of Merit, and is also one of few nominated for NAHRO's Award of Excellence. Moylan Terrace contains a mix of low, moderate and workforce priced homes. Moylan Terrace prides itself on being a "green" project, and exceeds California's strict energy conservation standards by 24%.

The Housing Authority of San Luis Obispo (HASLO) implemented a smoke-free policy on January 1, 2013 that prohibits residents from smoking in all of our public housing units and some of our San Luis Obispo Non-Profit complexes. The ban on smoking will eventually reach all of our housing units.
This ban on smoking is meant to prevent residents from being exposed to second- and third-hand smoke and to protect smoke and fire damage to our properties.
This policy was brought to HASLO by the majority of its residents in an effort to protect them from second-hand smoke which drifts from neighboring units, balconies and outdoor areas.
Additional rationales for smoking restrictions include:
- Reduced risk of fire
- Less cost in rehabbing an empty unit
- Healthier environments for all
- Giving a smoker the incentive to quit
HASLO is one of eighteen California housing authorities to adopt a smoke free policy.
Thank you to the San Luis Obispo County Public Health Department/Tobacco Control Program for their efforts to assist us in implementing this policy.
If you wish to stop smoking there are FREE “Quit Tobacco Classes” available throughout San Luis Obispo County at: http://www.slocounty.ca.gov/health/publichealth/HealthPromotion/SLOTCP/quittobaccoclasses.htm
