Housing choice voucher program: how it will improve life outcomes
The ZIP code in which a child lives is highly predictive of their long-term outcomes in life. Living in a ZIP code with high-performing schools, less crime, and lower incarceration rates can drastically increase the odds of breaking the cycle of poverty. CMHA was one of nine public housing authorities across the nation that participated in HUD’s Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) Mobility Demonstration giving families the opportunity to move to low-poverty neighborhoods. Join Dorivette, Aleksandra, and Carla for a conversation on the HCV program in Cleveland.
Leaders are needed now more than ever before, please help us to build our leadership today and for the future. The Way Forward Leader Lunch Breaks are offered for free but donations to support continued CLC programming are appreciated!
