RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif. – Bank of America Orange County has awarded the Hope through Housing Foundation a $10,000 grant to support adult economic mobility through its program, Pathways to Economic Empowerment.
“Bank of America understands the power of reaching families in affordable housing as a strategy to build strong financial futures,” said Hope through Housing President Greg Bradbard. “We are grateful for their support of this important work in Orange County.”
In partnership with its housing partner, National CORE, Hope through Housing provides a stable living environment for low-income individuals and families who may otherwise be at-risk of homelessness. It provides family stabilization leading to economic mobility through the combination of a secure, affordable apartment home and onsite services/supports that empower adults to overcome barriers to employment and improve their financial situation and prepare youth for future self-sufficiency. This work has proven particularly crucial during the current health crisis. Pathways to Economic Empowerment includes both virtual and one-on-one financial counseling and coaching for residents, helping them manage their money by creating a household budget and action plan, reducing their debt and increasing their savings.
Hope through Housing works to utilize affordable housing as a powerful platform for life transformation, empowering residents to reach goals they never previously thought were possible. It works to remove barriers to economic success for vulnerable populations and expand access to economic opportunity in low-income communities by providing a customized mix of services to help affordable housing residents increase their economic mobility and future self-sufficiency.
Hope through Housing Foundation’s mission is to help break the cycle of generational poverty. Utilizing onsite community centers and long-standing relationships with residents living within National CORE affordable apartment communities, it is able to deliver resources and support right where residents live, throughout and beyond the COVID-19 crisis.
