Rancho Cucamonga, Calif. – CTBC has awarded the Hope through Housing Foundation a $5,000 grant to help with the Rancho Cucamonga-based nonprofit’s Pathways to Economic Empowerment financial literacy program. The grant is earmarked to help residents in Los Angeles and Orange counties.
In partnership with affordable housing nonprofit, National Community Renaissance (National CORE), the 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.
“Especially in this very challenging time, this support from CTBC will be essential to helping us ensure our residents have their immediate needs met while preparing them for a full recovery to financial stability following this period,’’ said Gregory Bradbard, President of the Hope through Housing Foundation.
Hope through Housing Foundation’s mission is to help break the cycle of generational poverty. CTBC’s support will help it build economic mobility for low-income residents within 17 sites across Los Angeles and Orange counties. Pathways to Economic Empowerment involves financial literacy workshops along with one-on-one coaching sessions with a certified Economic Mobility Specialist who reviews financial documents, sets goals and monitors progress with residents. Workshops and coaching now are done virtually during the COVID-19 pandemic and will continue as Hope helps residents recover from the economic fallout of this health crisis.
The Hope through Housing Foundation has launched its COVID-19 Emergency Response & Resilience Fund. For more information, go to www.hthf.org.
