HACM Receives Diversity in Business Award
HACM was recently honored with a Diversity in Business award from The Daily Reporter for its At-Promise Resident Training Program. The program is a HACM initiative that provides low-income HACM residents with a new pathway to self-sufficiency. The program builds upon the stability of HACM’s quality, affordable housing by also offering on-the-job training, life skills development, and post-secondary education that together can transform residents’ lives. At-Promise provides motivated residents with the opportunity to overcome barriers that could otherwise keep them locked into a cycle of poverty.
The housing authority hopes to offer this program every year with the Greater Milwaukee Foundation's help in raising money to fund the program and identifying business partners who can provide job opportunities for participants.
