Mission Statement

Stride provides families with services and a personalized plan to attain economic independence and break the cycle of poverty.

Description

Family Self Sufficiency

The oldest and most basic of Stride's programs, this program serves 225 low-income families each year in Jefferson, Arapahoe, and Adams Counties. Approximately 70% of Stride clients are successful.

Homeless Families

Stride serves approximately 25 Jefferson County and 50 Aurora families referred from homeless shelters each year. Families receive affordable housing for two years, plus all of the services available in the family self-sufficiency program .

Home Ownership

Successful Stride families can receive help in purchasing their first home. This help may include home ownership counseling, down-payment assistance, and on-going home owner support. As of December 2005, thirty former clients have become home owners through this program.

Children's Education Fund

This fund helps Stride parents pay for enrichment programs their school-aged children either need or desire.
