Rancho Cucamonga, Calif. – Inland Southern California United Ways Coalition COVID-19 Relief Fund has awarded the Hope through Housing Foundation a $15,000 grant to help with the Rancho Cucamonga-based nonprofit’s own COVID-19 relief efforts for the residents it serves.
The coalition consists of Arrowhead United Way, Inland Empire United Way, Corona-Norco United Way, United Way of the Desert and United Way of the Inland Valleys. “During this challenging time for so many of the 10,000 children, parents, and seniors we serve, we are thrilled to partner with United Way to continue addressing the short- and long-term needs of residents as we press through and beyond this crisis,’’ said Gregory Bradbard, President of Hope through Housing Foundation.
In partnership with nonprofit partner, National Community Renaissance (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. 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. Hope 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’s mission is to break the cycle of generational poverty. It serves low-income residents within 32 sites across the Inland Empire in San Bernardino and Riverside counties. Utilizing onsite community centers and long-standing relationships with residents living within National CORE affordable apartment communities, it delivers resources and support right where residents live throughout and beyond the COVID-19 crisis.
