Helping Our Communities Prosper One Impact at a Time

At PROSPERA, our commitment to enhance opportunities for personal and professional success is exhibited through a wide range of supportive services provided to residents and surrounding neighborhoods. Our Resident Services programs are determined by identifying high-value key performance indicators that ensure the services provided throughout our Community Learning Centers are of optimal quality, and demonstrate the positive effects of service-enriched housing. Many of our Centers were designed by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) as part of the national Neighborhood Networks program, meeting specified standards of excellence for their operations. Using an initial assessment survey, our on-site Services Managers obtain baseline data for each community to tailor services around the following focus areas:

• Home Management
• Social and Community Engagement
• Transportation
• Income, Budget, and Employment Status
• Food Security and Nutrition
• Health and Mental Health
• Adult Education and Development
• Youth Education and Development

Thorough informal case management and intensive follow-up assessments allow us to address the impact of the services and programs designed to fit the needs and interests of each community. Our goal is to assist families and individuals to achieve a greater quality of life by implementing services and programs that fall into three main categories of service:

• Communities Prosper

• Strengthening Through Education

• Economic Stability
