The promise of economic mobility – that a child growing up in poverty can work their way up the
income ladder – has always been an essential part of the American Dream. For millions of people
in this country, however, that promise has not been fulfilled.
We have long known that where a person lives – the city, the neighborhood, even the block –
determines her access to schools, jobs, food, health services, public transportation and other resources that are necessary to build skills, stay healthy and get ahead.
Our program has a positive ripple effect that reaches the entire community.
We improve the economic health and vitality of the community, equip people with the skills necessary to compete in today’s marketplace with area employers.
We do this while offering Eco-affordable homes to families in communities where people thrive,with connections to resources like health care, schools, jobs and transportation while increasing the Amenity Value and Quality of Life in the Neighborhood.
Services that stabilize and remove socioeconomic barriers including safety, food, and housing.
These programs often serve as the first stepping-stone out of poverty, assisting people to acquire the information and skills needed to live independently and offset future crises.
Our “Path to Prosperity “model incorporates a holistic, 19 domain assessment to understand the family’s strengths and needs.
As a strength based, person centered approach to case planning, we then encourage individuals to ask,
- What path would you like to take?
- What does saving look like ?
We support them on that journey through their plan, collaborating with additional community partners and providing resources along the way
