Hope through Housing

Rancho Cucamonga, CA
$150,000
December 2013

Hope through Housing Foundation is collaborating with East Los Angles Community Corporation to implement a comprehensive approach to help low-income families stabilize their finances, increase their incomes, build savings and address personal barriers that stand in the way of upward economic mobility.  Onsite case management, financial coaching, referrals to child care and educational opportunities, and access to low-cost banking and micro-loans will be offered at a recently opened, 60-unit affordable housing development in East Los Angeles.  The project will serve residents as well as community members.  Over the next two years, 100 participants who are struggling to overcome poverty will be served with the goal that 80% will achieve milestones toward financial mobility.  The project will inform replication of this approach by Hope Through Housing’s affiliate National Community Renaissance, which has developed and manages affordable housing units for 25,000 low-income families and individuals.
