Changing Lives: Opportunity and Equity

When Pam entered FPCA's Affordable Housing Program in February 2017, she began working on a goal plan, as all program participants do. Her main objective in life was to leave retail and try to get work that would pay a living wage. She liked her retail job and she was good at it, but, she had been overlooked for management too many times, and she couldn't rely on the fluctuating hours to make ends meet. Approaching 50, she knew she could do more. She knew she had to do more. She soon became one of two program participants to join Trubridge's employment program. It's a partnership geared toward helping unhoused individuals or individuals with low income enter a professional work environment. In the program, Pam transferred the skills she had to her new position, but she also learned an entirely new skill set. With help from her case manager, she has since purchased a car and paid off some debt. Best of all, she fulfilled her personal goal.

The program was launched by FPCA Board Member Heather Fowler in 2016 to offer opportunities for permanent employment with decent working conditions, decent pay and a decent future.
