General Information:
Services Bridge Housing For families in need of shelter and support, Upward Bound House provides medium-term bridge housing on the Westside. Case managers, housing locators and employment specialists work with each family to assess their unique needs and create a customized plan for achieving long-term stability and independence. Once in permanent housing, families build on their success with aftercare support from our programs staff and expansive network of community partners. Our goal is to ensure that families feel secure and supported, and that all school-age youth in our programs are attending school. In addition to 21 one-bedroom units, families also have access to common areas including a playground, laundry room, garden, and library, as well as an on-site food pantry and a "thrift store". Parents and their children enjoy enrichment activities throughout their time with us, including tutoring, life skills and holiday events. Emergency Shelter Upward Bound House provides families in crisis with short-term emergency shelter on the Westside and in South Los Angeles. Throughout their time in shelter, children and their parents are provided with daily grab-and-go breakfasts and hot evening meals, as well as clothing and household items as needed. While in a safe and comfortable living space with their children, parents work with our case managers, housing locators and employment specialists to achieve stability and independence for their families. We help move families into permanent housing and connect them with our vast network of community partners while also continuing to support their growth with aftercare services that we provide. Rapid Rehousing Upward Bound House's Rapid Rehousing program works to help the growing population of families in South Los Angeles who are experiencing homelessness. Using the Housing First model, we move families into permanent affordable housing as quickly as possible, assist with move-in costs such as security and utility deposits and short-medium term declining rental subsidies, and provide intensive social services while families are in their own homes. These supportive services are designed to enhance each family's stability and equip them with the skills and resources they need to sustain and thrive in housing and avoid future homelessness. Once a family is housed, Upward Bound House works with over 20 community-based organizations to provide additional supportive services to increase their income, help them escape poverty, and improve the health, education and development of their young children.
