Network’s help with critical basic needs – food, clothing, rent, and utility assistance- is a lifeline to many, often helping them get through challenging times, avoid eviction and even homelessness. However, sometimes these same individuals continue to return for assistance due to other obstacles and limitations that keep them from reaching stability.
To address these barriers, Network launched its Pampillonia Pathways Program last year as a “pilot” project intended to work deeper and more comprehensively with a small group of individuals. With a “stability plan” in place, these individuals can participate in job coaching, access to mainstream benefits, financial literacy classes, GED and ESL classes to improve their earning potential.
