Housing & Hope is a local, community based social impact project offering a private answer to homelessness. It is an initiative designed to provide a private answer to the affordable housing and situationally homeless challenges. The Housing & Hope model is a systematic approach designed to unify the civic, business, non-profit and church arenas together around a common solution. Together, these constituents help address the needs within a diverse set of social issues like Human Trafficking, Refugees, Homelessness and Foster Care in the Sacramento region.
Housing & Hope is a community development approach to transformation in under-resourced communities. It applies a more “wholistic” and systematic approach to issues faced by our local communities. Based on modern research, it is clear that successful trans-formative change proves difficult in communities without addressing three foundational community needs:
• Mentoring (coaching/training/relationship)
• Employment (with a focus on people and relationship; not a one size fits all program)
These needs ring true across constituent areas, including at-risk youth, homelessness, human trafficking and refugees. Therefore, the way in which we provide for those three needs, must be sustainable and include the collective components of Prevention, Intervention and Transformation (PIT model) managed and coordinated by E49 through its continuum approach.
