2nd Story Programs
2nd Story Associates has been working towards creating programs that serve individual needs and promote a diverse and socially equitable community.
Programs provide much needed resources for even the most basic of needs including dental care, furniture, transportation and utility assistance.
These programs and services are instrumental in helping to improve the life and dignity of those we serve.
Emergency Assistance Fund
The Emergency Assistance Fund assists low-income Housing Authority clients with a one-time financial intervention.
This unique program prevents a short-term financial gap from becoming a major financial setback.
2nd Story Associates works directly with clients to ensure resources provide the most advantageous and lasting impact.
Moving into a new home with no furniture or basic household items can be disheartening. Many newly housed families, seniors and disabled individuals are coming from situations with little to no items to furnish their home.
Furnishing Hope provides Housing Authority clients in need with a "Welcome Home Kit" of basic household items and donated furniture to help furnish their new home.
Camping may be considered an "inexpensive" activity, but for families with limited resources the provision of even the most basic camping materials can be a hardship.
Sponsor-a-Camper and help 2nd Story Associates give youth the opportunity to connect with nature and disconnect with the challenges of their day-to-day lives.
Growth Readiness And Development
The goal of GRAD Academy is to help youth participating in Housing Authority programs to achieve a high school graduation rate of 95% and ensure graduates are either college and/or career ready.
