Family Goal: Provide A Safety Net For Families In Need Of A Hand Up Food on the table or gas in the car? A choice no family should have to make. Area IV provides a safety net for hard working families in our community. Family Goal: Provide A Safety Net For Families In Need Of A Hand Up We’re excited to announce the launch of our new initiative “Spark”. Spark will provide critical supports, coaching, and resources to help low income families achieve long-term financial stability. Family Goal: Improve Access To Quality, Affordable Housing We believe all children and families should have access to safe, affordable housing. Area IV provides vouchers and offers affordable housing opportunities to low income families. Family Goal: Ensure The Elderly Receive Critical Care And Support Many of the elderly in our community are struggling to meet their most basic needs. Area IV is working hard to change that each day – providing critical supports to elderly residents and their caregivers. See how you can lend a helping hand. Community Goal: Close The Transportation Gap A lack of reliable transportation often stops low income neighbors in our community from obtaining a livable wage job. Area IV is working to change that. Community Goal: Expand Support Services And Community Building Initiatives We invest in programs and services that promote healthy, thriving families. Take a look at support services and initiatives available in your community. Community Goal: Provide Safe, Affordable, High Quality Childcare Low income and working poor families in our community struggle to afford safe, quality child care. No wonder when the average cost of child care is $972 per month – for one child. Area IV bridges the cap with our high quality child care program.
