Executive Summary

Westhab, Inc. has 30 years experience of pursuing our mission of Building Communities and Changing Lives through developing affordable housing and delivering critically needed social services in metropolitan New York. 20 half-time AmeriCorps Members (representing 10 member service years) will provide educational services to homeless and at-risk children living in shelters and distressed neighborhoods, and place economically disadvantaged households into permanent housing, and new jobs. At the end of the three year period, we anticipate that AmeriCorps members will improve the literacy rates of 540 homeless and/or low-income children, move 180 homeless and low-income households into new homes, and place 180 hard-to-serve adults into employment. The focus areas of this project are Education and Economic Opportunity. The total project amount of $164,172 represents a CNCS investment of $121,917 (cost per MSY set at $12,191.73) and an in-kind match of $42,255.
