Not only does Housing Hope offer affordable housing opportunities, but they also offer tailored services such as life-skills training, childcare, case management, and employment services. Last year, the District teamed up with Housing Hope to educate residents with the lowest incomes and the greatest need for the benefits of gardening and nutritious food. Through an urban agriculture grant and our internal Lawns to Lettuce program, SCD was able to provide a growing season of education and assistance. These skills not only benefited Housing Hope clients that growing season, by saving them money and providing nutritious produce, but it will also benefit them far into the future. These gardens create space and beauty that all of the Housing Hope residents can enjoy.
