The Communitas Initiative: Lifting People Up Program
With the assistance of the City of Burbank, Burbank Housing Corporation and the Glendale Communitas Initiative partnered to create the Lifting People Up (LPU) Program. The LPU Program is a three-year pilot program that encompasses case management, education, job training, and supportive services specific to BHC residents. Participants of the LPU program have access to a professional caseworker and a certified financial planner to create a comprehensive, personalized plan with actionable goals and resources.
Since April 2019, the Glendale Communitas Initiative moved into BHC’s Catalina Activity Center to operate the LPU Program. Since then, Communitas has provided several educational workshops on budgeting, retirement planning, and so much more! They have been working closely with BHC residents to help them achieve their personal & financial goals.
