Numerica Credit Union has announced a $30,000 commitment to help support SNAP’s (Spokane Neighborhood Action Program) Youth Transitional Housing program.
The program works to help provide individuals 18 to 24 who are transitioning out of foster care and other situations with housing. Secure housing serves as a foundation in order to pursue educational and job opportunities and is often a game-changer for their future.
“In the twists and turns in life, it’s important to know someone has your back,” said Numerica Credit Union Director of Communications, Kelli Hawkins. “Numerica supports organizations that provide essential services to help enhance lives for some of our most vulnerable community members.”
Primary financial support for this program is currently provided through the deferral Housing and Urban Development (HUD) office and City of Spokane. With demand rising, it was vital to find additional support to ensure the Youth Transitional Housing program’s success.
“Numerica and SNAP have had a strong relationship over the years. Seeing the substantial need for safe and reliable youth transitional housing, Numerica has generously agreed to support this program over a three-year period,” said Craig Howard, SNAP Community Relations and Development Manager.
In addition to the financial support of the Youth Transitional Housing program, Numerica will provide a series of financial education classes. These classes focus on topics ranging from budget, fraud, investing and credit.
“Numerica is committed to fostering well-being and that starts with education. Having real conversations about finances today will build a positive relationship with money for tomorrow,” said Hawkins.
