For families in need of shelter and support, Upward Bound House provides medium-term bridge housing on the Westside.
Case managers, housing locators and employment specialists work with each family to assess their unique needs and create a customized plan for achieving long-term stability and independence. Once in permanent housing, families build on their success with aftercare support from our programs staff and expansive network of community partners.
Our goal is to ensure that families feel secure and supported, and that all school-age youth in our programs are attending school. In addition to 21 one-bedroom units, families also have access to common areas including a playground, laundry room, garden, and library, as well as an on-site food pantry and a “thrift store”. Parents and their children enjoy enrichment activities throughout their time with us, including tutoring, life skills and holiday events.
