National CORE and Hope through Housing are completing the revitalization of 382 combined units at Countryside Village and the nearby Colony of Humble to transform the neighborhood into a quality place to live. A new community center operated by Hope through Housing provides services for children, youth and families in this community.
Countryside Village’s service strategy is targeted toward helping adults achieve economic stability by increasing their basic skills and education levels.
- Adult education classes aid adults in completing their GED or high school diploma, preparing for post-secondary education or training, and making sound financial decisions.
- Individual tutoring services assist adults to master basic skills so that they can pass GED classes and entrance exams for post-secondary education opportunities.
Impact on Participants
- The US Bureau of Labor identifies increasing education levels as the best way to reduce the chances of being poor. Higher education increases access to higher paying jobs with greater stability and opportunity for advancement.
