RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif. – The Patriots Connection Fund at the Rancho Santa Fe Foundation has awarded the Hope through Housing Foundation a $40,000 grant to support youth development programs to help at-risk young people succeed both academically and socially. The grant will support after-school and college and career readiness programs at affordable housing communities in San Marcos.
“As we help kids to catch up academically after so much disruption these past two years, this support will be essential to ensuing our youth thrive and succeed in school this next year,” said Hope through Housing President Greg Bradbard.
In collaboration with its housing partner, National CORE, the Hope through Housing Foundation 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. The Patriots Connection Fund grant will support Hope through Housing’s efforts, as part of its Building Bright Futures initiative, to remove academic and social barriers facing young people living in three San Marcos low-income affordable housing communities.
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. Key to those efforts is education.
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.
