Rancho Cucamonga, Calif. – Regional Access Project Foundation has awarded Hope through Housing Foundation a $12,500 grant focusing on care coordination to increase awareness, reduce stigma and connect residents with available behavioral health and wellness resources to better meet their mental and physical health needs.
Efforts will be concentrated at the Cathedral Palms and Desert Meadows properties, National Community Renaissance (National CORE) low-income affordable housing communities. Residents are now focused on their basic, physical needs as a result of the COVID crisis. Immediate attention will be on helping to reduce financial stressors that contribute to poor mental health.
Residents in Cathedral City, Indio and La Quinta are some of Hope through Housing’s most vulnerable children, families, and seniors. Hope through Housing serves residents who earn between 30-80% of the Area Median Income; 64% of its households are headed by single mothers; and 83% of its youth qualify for free/reduced meals.
The Rancho Cucamonga-based nonprofit has launched a COVID-19 Emergency Response & Resilience Fund. For more information, visit https://hthf.org/how-to-get-involved/emergency-relief-and-resilience-fund/.
