Service Area: Marshall-Ridley Neighborhood
This program is for: Residents of the Marshall-Ridley Neighborhood
Program Description: As the lead organization of the People plan for the Marshall-Ridley Neighborhood, HRCAP utilized findings from community surveys to identify and address three core needs: health, employment, and education.
Along with partner organizations we will improve the health of residents by: improving access to health care services and increase the number of residents with health insurance, reduce food insecurity with community gardens, hold workshops to improve health education, and develop a pickup and delivery food service.
Employment needs will be addressed by: offering job training, satellite classes, promoting volunteer programs to help residents gain exposure to job openings and work experience, collaborating with employers to prepare residents for employment, and work with HRT to increase connectivity to jobs. Additionally, affordable GED programs with childcare will be developed, residents’ financial literacy will be increased through counseling programs, and residents will become more connected with free internet hotspots in the community.
Educational needs will be met by increasing the availability and strength of early education programs, creating a continuum of enriched learning and support opportunities to residents, and strengthening school-to-career pathways by fostering college and career preparedness.
