RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif. – The Fontana Foundation of Hope has awarded the Hope through Housing Foundation a $65,000 grant to support basic care and wellness for seniors living in four affordable housing communities in Fontana.
The Fontana Foundation of Hope grant will support Hope through Housing’s Connections to Care program at Fountains at Sierra, Gardens at Sierra, Plaza at Sierra and Village at Sierra. All four communities are homes to seniors. The goal of Connections to Care is to provide programs and services that allow seniors to live independently in comfort and with care for as long as possible. The program promotes basic care aimed at reducing depression and isolation.
“This support will help 390 senior households to rebuild their lives after two years of isolation,” said Gregory Bradbard, Hope through Housing President. “We are so grateful for Fontana Foundation of Hope’s commitment to our mission for so many years.”
In partnership 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.
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 seeks 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.
The 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. For more information, please visit www.hthf.org.
