Our plans help families increase earned income, reduce the need for assistance, and achieve economic independence.
Affordable housing providers manage physical assets, and they can also assist individuals and families improve the quality of their lives, and in many cases, follow a path toward self-sufficiency. Families can face formidable barriers that impact their emotional, social and physical well-being. Therefore, it is important that housing providers offer appropriate and innovative services to help families improve their lives through better health, education and job security.
EJP has an impressive record of providing strategic planning and technical assistance in the design, financing, implementation and evaluation of human services programs that assist low-income families. We have worked as program managers with multiple housing authorities and clients to plan, implement and evaluate effective, long-term, sustainable strategic partnerships to deliver community and supportive services. Working with foundations, non-profit organizations and local government agencies, these efforts respond to the needs of residents and are grounded by funding and capacity constraints while also leveraging the work of high-capacity partners.
EJP helps its clients develop a continuum of support services that address the needs of families in areas such as:
Education and literacy
Health and wellness
Participating families increase earned income, reduce or eliminate the need for public assistance, make progress toward achieving economic independence and housing self-sufficiency, minimize intergenerational poverty, or, in the case of elderly or disabled residents, improve living conditions and aging-in-place.
