Person County Success Initiative

The Success Initiative is a collaborative community effort to help elevate people out of poverty and prevent homelessness. It is designed to build lasting relationships across socioeconomic and cultural lines, encouraging all Roxboro and Person County residents to realize their full potential without prejudice or class distinction.

 

The mission of this program is to help provide the short and long term support that enable families to move themselves into financial sustainability and provide long-term solutions to the problem of poverty.

 

Individuals and families will participate in a ten week training program that covers budgets & finances, employment, overcoming barriers, ally partnerships, SMART goals, resources, and education. After graduating the training program, participants are matched with Mentors (community volunteers) for approximately 12 months. By bringing together resources and building social capital, families can transition out of poverty as they learn more about available community resources and meeting other community members.

 

Contact The CHC if you would like to participate in the program, be a volunteer, or donate to help cover childcare and meal costs!
