100 CAMPAIGN HOUSING GRANT RECIPIENT: OUR HOUSE
for September 1, 2021
We are excited to announce the grant winner for our 3rd cause area in the 100 Campaign – Housing. Thanks to the generosity of our 100 Campaign donor community, we are granting Our House with $3,000!
Our House empowers homeless and near-homeless families and individuals to succeed in the workforce, in school, and in life through hard work, wise decision-making, and active participation in the community. This grant will provide housing services to those struggling to come out of homelessness as a result of the pandemic.
Our House works equally with parents and children to help whole families build the skills, resources, and confidence to break the cycle of poverty and achieve their highest goals in life. Children thrive in their Children’s Center after-school and developmental programs.
Full-time employment is at the cornerstone of their vision for empowering families and individuals to achieve lasting self-sufficiency and independence. Their Career Center provides extensive resources to help adults find jobs and build fulfilling careers. They partner with local employers who hire their clients and contribute to their training programs. They provide financial skills training to help families make the most of their income.
