Housing fund gets a $500,000 boost

Catholic Healthcare West, the health system that owns French Hospital Medical Center in San Luis Obispo, Arroyo Grande Community Hospital and Marian Medical Center in Santa Maria, is giving $500,000 to the San Luis Obispo County Housing Trust Fund.

It is the San Francisco-based health system’s third investment in the fund, which is used exclusively to finance below-market-price housing projects in San Luis Obispo County.
