Capacity Building

Hope through Housing offers children, families and seniors a hand up, not a hand out. We believe that the most effective way to lift people out of poverty and strengthen communities is by building human capacity. Our programs are designed to help individuals find their own way – offering resources and the expertise of highly qualified partners.

It is our belief that partnering with local providers allows all of us to fulfill our missions in an effective manner and enables us to improve the overall communities we serve. Working with strategic partners, Hope through Housing shares data, trends and business functions in order to better serve children, families and seniors living in neighborhoods of poverty, crime, blight and isolation.

Hope through Housing’s Regional Capacity Building program offers local providers technical assistance and trainings on developing site-based service models, building resident relationships and working with partners and other stakeholders.

This commitment to community transformation forms the basis and infrastructure for developing social networks that support strong communities.


Providing opportunities for our children, families and seniors to thrive would not be possible without a strong network of community partners. Together, we increase our capacity to serve a population that needs assistance to move beyond poverty. This approach reduces gaps in services, encourages the sharing of resources and data, and promotes best practices.

70 potential homebuyers attended Hope through Housing’s first housing resource fair in Rancho Cucamonga in collaboration with Neighborhood Partnership Housing Services and the Greater Riverside Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.

Our partnership with Cal State San Bernardino’s nursing program has proved to be mutually beneficial, allowing students to fulfill course requirements while providing seniors with preventative care at six affordable housing communities.

The YMCA of Orange County is so committed to our families that it has raised its own funding to provide additional services for our youth, such as Zumba, judo and summer swim classes at our Arbor Villas and Villa Plumosa communities in Yorba Linda, CA.
