With hard work on the part of the program participants and guidance from our Program Manager, the end goal of this 2-year program is permanent housing, employment, and self-sufficiency. During their time in the program, participants do not pay rent but they do pay into a savings account. Participants work on furthering their education whether a technical program, certificate, or diploma.
This program has been successful in helping people get out of poverty and live a life free from public assistance. It's amazing what someone can accomplish once you take the worry of housing off the table!
