You can have an impact breaking the cycle of generational poverty!

Imagine being just a paycheck away from becoming homeless with no support to help in a time of crisis. Loss of employment, an unexpected medical bill, or an auto repair leaves you without enough money to pay your monthly bills… putting your home and family security at risk. As adults struggle, so do their children.

Children growing up in the culture of poverty face many challenges. Frequently, they don’t get enough sleep or enough to eat. These children might not have had the opportunity to bathe nor have their clothes laundered. Often these children are deprived of meaningful opportunities to form healthy attachments with adults and other children.

Our services make it possible for our clients to preserve or obtain housing; retain or restore utilities; and re-establish one’s identity through birth certificates or state IDs which are required to apply for public assistance, rent housing, obtain employment and obtain healthcare. Upward Transitions, Inc. has been in continuous operation since 1925. It is a recognized and respected provider of relief assistance. We use a strengths-based case management model, and we strive to empower and encourage our clients to stability rather than to foster codependency.

The need in our community is great. Every day, we average more than 70 requests for rent and utility assistance. Currently, we are able to provide assistance for only 10% of those requests.
