Lifting People Up (LPU) Program

On January 1, 2020, Family Promise of the Verdugos officially merged with one of our partners, The Communitas Initiative. The Communitas organization became one of Family Promise’s core programs.

Family Promise now implements all programs that were under the Communitas umbrella including the Lifting People Up (LPU) program. The LPU program was created in partnership with the city of Burbank to provide supportive services to the residents living in BHC Communities. The goal of the program is to provide supportive services that assist with financial and career goals. In addition, on-site individual case management and financial counseling are provided to BHC residents to create an action plan to overcome obstacles & achieve their goals.

Currently, the LPU program is offering drop-in hours every Monday through Friday from 1:00pm to 6:00pm at the Catalina Activity Center, 2321 N. Catalina St. Burbank CA 91504. During these drop-in hours, residents can work with the LPU case manager, Christina Ellixson, who provides free job search & resume assistance, connections with local resources & social services, and develop a financial success plan.
