It is our duty to love the unloved, help the helpless, and bring hope to the hopeless ~ Anthony Douglas

NEWS

CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky has signed an extension to the eviction moratorium further preventing the eviction of tenants who are unable to make rental payments. The moratorium that was scheduled to expire on June 30, 2021 is now extended through July 31, 2021 and this is intended to be the final extension of the moratorium. The CDC moratorium does not change local eviction protections currently in place, and does not relieve tenants of their obligation to pay rent.

WELCOME

 

Welcome to August!!! Let’s be reminded that school is in session. Last year, the pandemic created a learning gap that was outside of our norm. Not only did it challenge healthcare workers, it challenged teachers, parents, and students. As we go back into the classroom we need to respect the platform that we are given with in person learning and the socialization it creates. Remember, the classroom is not just for primary and secondary education, but for life-long learning, your learning! You classroom can be your home, the park, the library, or a friends house so take advantage of it.

Update: PUTP has two Single Occupant Rooms available!

Amid the COVID-19 pandemic is a hidden epidemic of domestic violence. Weather physical, mental, or both it strains relationships and exposes our future generations to behaviors which include loss of control, aggression, chemical dependence, and in some cases a developed tolerance.

BEHIND THE SCENES/GROW YOUR OWN

We tilled, we fed, we seeded, and we harvested a successful vegetable garden. PUTP will continue to apply this process to everything that we do. We will continue to “grow our own.” A term reserved for farmers who grow their own vegetables, but adopted by PUTP as our ability to sow into our community in an effort to help it grow one person at a time.
