RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif. – The Kaiser Permanente Hospital Foundation has awarded the Hope through Housing Foundation a $50,000 grant to prevent homelessness by improving the financial and social well-being of families in the Inland Empire.
“Kaiser recognizes that stable housing and effective financial habits are key social determinants of health,” said Gregory Bradbard, President of the Hope through Housing Foundation. “We are grateful for their investment in families living in affordable housing communities throughout the Inland Empire.”
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 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.
The nonprofit also has provided rental assistance to residents of its communities to ensure that families and individuals remain housed. This $50,000 Kaiser grant will specifically provide economic empowerment activities, including a money match program that encourages and rewards residents as they establish a habit of monthly saving.
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, Hope is able to deliver resources and support right where residents live, throughout and beyond the COVID-19 crisis.
