RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif. – Pacific Premier Bank has awarded the Hope through Housing Foundation a $7,500 grant to assist affordable housing residents in San Bernardino and Riverside counties with their financial management.
“With over 4.6 million residents in the Inland Empire and so many families struggling with increasing costs, we are grateful for Pacific Premier’s commitment to helping build financial skills and economic mobility for those in affordable housing,” said Hope through Housing President Greg Bradbard.
Together with its nonprofit 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 economic mobility and prepare youth for future self-sufficiency. The Pacific Premier grant will support Hope through Housing’s Pathways to Economic Empowerment initiative, which offers programming including one-on-one financial counseling and savings programs to help residents move toward financial self-sufficiency.
This program also helps provide rental assistance to help families stay housed as the ramifications from COVID-19 continue to impact their lives. Pacific Premier understands the importance of rental relief in order to prevent evictions.
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’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.
