RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif. – The Inland Southern California United Way has awarded the Hope through Housing Foundation a $7,500 grant to support its youth development program, Building Bright Futures.
“We are proud to partner with ISCUW in their mission to unite people, ideas, and resources to empower our community and improve lives,” said Hope through Housing President Greg Bradbard. “Every day, we seek to empower residents of affordable housing, and we are grateful for their partnership.”
In collaboration 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/supports that prepare youth for future self-sufficiency and empower adults to overcome barriers to employment and improve their financial situation. This work has proven particularly crucial during the current health crisis. The Inland Southern California United Way grant will support Hope’s after-school programs. Building Bright Futures helps students 5 to 18 years old by providing academic and social support along with college/career readiness coaching.
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 self-sufficiency. It also supports and encourages youth to pursue academic success and high school graduation.
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, throughout and beyond the COVID-19 crisis.
