Marine Corps Veteran, Unhoused for Decades, Finds A Supportive Home at Veterans Park
As Humberto begins to recover from the toll that homelessness took on him, he’s equally excited about the new possibilities he has at Veterans Park, like “meeting new people, new friends, starting all over, and maybe having a barbecue once in a while.”
He said that the feeling of finally being in his own home again “feels like a real big boost. My family don’t have to worry about me as much, knowing that I’m off the streets.”

Malik J. Mallory: Bringing a Unique Perspective to the Hope through Housing Board of Directors
Through hard work, Malik Mallory has made a successful career and life for himself, becoming a financial advisor running his own Edwards Jones office in Rancho Cucamonga. But he hasn’t always had an easy path – while growing up in various communities throughout the Inland Empire, Mr. Mallory saw many of his young friends and acquaintances go down different, dangerous roads. Now, Malik is ready to provide his personal and professional expertise on the Hope through Housing Board, helping guide the foundation’s ever-improving approach to helping low-income residents break the cycle of generational poverty.
Empowering Youth to Make Health Happen at Vista Del Cielo
Hope through Housing is joining forces with HealthCorps, a fellow mission-driven national nonprofit, to empower youth to live healthier lifestyles and serve as leaders for their community.
HealthCorps strives to address health inequities in at-risk communities through educational leadership, programming, and service learning. Over the past few months, HealthCorps Member Roman Fernandez has been leading weekly Teens Make Health Happen sessions at Vista Del Cielo, working in partnership with Hope through Housing’s existing teen club to engage the community’s middle schoolers.
“The main goal was really to empower the youth there – really make them agents and make them feel that they can change their community for the better,” Roman said. “And to also help them focus on their overall mental health and overall physical health.”
Hope through Housing and U.S. Bank Host 18 Financial Literacy Workshops in April for Affordable Housing Residents
April was Financial Literacy Month, and Hope through Housing and U.S. Bank celebrated the occasion by offering financial literacy workshops to hundreds of affordable housing residents across Southern California.

The hour-long workshops, including sessions led in Spanish, offered valuable tips on saving, preparing for unexpected expenses, preventing identity theft, and building smart financial habits.
U.S. Bank employees targeted workshops to specialized audiences. Sessions on avoiding identity theft were intended for seniors, while workshops on the basic principles of personal finance were offered to teens.
