AlongSide U

Making Poverty Temporary...NOT a Lifestyle

Our primary purpose is to come AlongSide families currently living in subsidized housing, utilizing what we refer to as an "Empowerment Track". The Empowerment Track is our method of guiding individuals within our program and measuring productivity and growth.

Empowerment Track

Through the identification of individual needs, placement is focused on realistic requirements and necessities vs. governmental categorization of a particular demographic group. Resulting in progressive movement from poverty to Independent Living... changing generational cycles of poverty.

Our Empowerment Track includes 5 main areas of focus:

1. Credit/Banking

2. Education

3.Transportation

4. Career

5. Homeownership

We also assist, and provide referrals in the following areas: Substance Abuse, Interviewing Skills, Ability to Function Electronically, Block Calendar Scheduling/Agenda, Environment, Social Skills, Parenting Skills, Couponing/Ways to Save, Meal Planning/Healthy Eating, Housekeeping, Organization, etc. 


NOT CURRENTLY ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS!

Imagine... a house with the entry door open, full of people that reside there. There is a line of people out front on a waiting list of 2+ years to enter, and the exit door is closed. There are people that are in low income/subsidized housing that stay there for years. Most of them work jobs making minimum wage, or just above it, receive government assistance, and they stay stagnant in the area of poverty for years... or for life. This results in a waiting list that is clogged. 

ALONGSIDE U OPENS THE EXIT DOOR!

Reimagine... creating space and opportunity for others that are homeless, or in need of temporary low income housing assistance to start their journey. 

Housing Poverty with a Plan= Independent Living

AlongSide U recognizes the strength and value of Community, Small Businesses, and Nonprofit Organizations. We are building stronger families through collective efforts and partnerships.
