HABC Community Activities and Initiatives
Money Smart Classes
Case management staff, in partnership with financial organizations trained in FDIC curriculum, offer quarterly Money Smart classes at our public housing communities. Topics include: borrowing basics, pay yourself first, banking services, budgeting, repairing your credit and homeownership.
Back To School Drives
FSS case managers organize back-to-school drives to help residents with costs of school supplies. The funds raised pay for school supplies, uniforms, immunizations and haircuts.
Case managers participate in and support community health fairs.
Family self-sufficiency provides residents information on upcoming job fairs and assists with transportation, resume preparation, interview technique and necessary job skills.
Summer Youth Employment
HABC provides youth, ages 14 to 24, the opportunity to learn on-the-job training during summer months. Employment may be with HABC or with one of our partners.
During the holiday season, case and property management staff identify needy families and supply holiday meals to them.
