Our EOP & Rent Assistance Programs Featured as National Best Practice

April 6th, 2018

We are pleased to announce that our Economic Opportunity Program and rent assistance model are featured as a national best practice in a new report published by the National Alliance to End Homelessness. The report focuses on successful partnerships and collaborations between workforce development and homeless service systems and addresses common challenges, strategies and approaches to working together. 

An independent study conducted by Meyer Memorial Trust examined our rent assistance and found that training participants who received the assistance had vastly better outcomes than those who did not. 

The Economic Opportunity Program helps disadvantaged people in our region connect to the training and employment they need to move towards self sufficiency and is designed to provide wrap-around support to participants to increase outcomes.
