Rancho Cucamonga, Calif. – Hope through Housing Foundation’s Building Bright Futures initiative has received a boost of support from Southern California Edison for efforts to provide after-school and teen programs in Rancho Cucamonga, Montclair, Rialto and San Bernardino.
The Hope through Housing program serves families – many of them run by single-parents working more than one job – with free after-school care, homework support, enrichment activities, character development, career planning and college scholarships.
Southern California Edison has provided $5,000 for the 2023-24 academic year.
“Southern California Edison has long been an incredible partner to the Hope through Housing Foundation,” Hope through Housing President Gregory Bradbard said. “This donation, along with their history of support, will help us improve the future for children across the region.”
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 can deliver resources and support right where residents live. Hope through Housing offers services to more than 8,000 households and 24,000 residents.
Hope through Housing has three additional areas of focus.
The Connections to Care program supports senior residents with mental and physical health programs, social connectedness and financial aid, as well as a host of services that include transit support, disaster preparedness and aid in obtaining benefits. The Pathways to Economic Empowerment program supports family stabilization leading to economic mobility through a mix of secure, affordable apartment homes and onsite services/supports that empower adults to overcome barriers to employment and improve their financial situation. In partnership with its housing partner, National CORE, the foundation’s Unlocking Opportunities program also provides a stable living environment for individuals and families at risk of homelessness.
