“The idea is simple. Assemble a team of stakeholders from many disciplines in a central location where they can offer intensive support to low-income families struggling to get ahead. EnVision Centers are specifically designed to help households achieve self-sufficiency through economic empowerment, educational advancement, character and leadership development, and health and wellness training. This is treating the patient.
Many of the services low-income families need already exist. EnVision Centers will bring together government and non-profit services together under one roof so that residents and communities can easily access them. By assembling programs in one space, HUD is leveraging existing funding and supportive services—whether its job training, mentorship, or health services—in a holistic manner.”
