MOMENTS that MATTER Contra Costa Interfaith Housing 2014-2015 Impact Report

Walking Onto Campus My First Day of College I’m the first in my family to go to college. My first day at UC Davis was different; it was strange being far from home, but I felt well prepared. Rosemary (East County’s Youth Enrichment Coordinator) helped me with my UC applications and financial aid. My family has moved many times trying to find steady work and housing. I’m so happy my father now has a stable job and encourages my education.

Realizing My Family is Going to Be Okay I don’t know where we’d be without Garden Park Apartments. Moving here was the first time we lived together as a family. After leaving an abusive marriage, I lost my house and became homeless. My life fell apart. Since then, I remarried, my husband is working, and we’re raising our 12-year-old daughter. On hard days, I come home and close the door. We have our own space. We can be a family. It makes all the difference.


Going to Summer Camp for the First Time This is the first summer I did fun things. We got to paint on a giant canvas and made art. The next week, we played with robots and computers. We learned how to build and program the robots. It was really cool. I also got to go to Animal Architect Camp at Lindsay Wildlife Experience and learn about how animals build things like beavers building dams. It was fun because I like to build things too.


Achieving My Professional Goal Growing up in group homes and foster care was hard. I didn’t graduate from high school. After I had children, I was determined to become a better mother. I received my GED and went to school to become a Licensed Vocational Nurse (LVN). When my youngest son was only eight, we lost our housing. I had nowhere to turn. After months of sleeping on couches, an apartment opened up at Garden Park Apartments. CCIH help me finish school, and I graduated with my LVN. Now I’m working full-time. Just knowing that I have a place to live and that I have other people supporting me is amazing. I’ve come so far.


Dear Friends and Supporters: Have you ever experienced a moment in your life that changed everything? That “aha� moment that altered your perspective, outlook, and future? Realizing your family is going to be ok. Walking onto campus your first day of college. Achieving your professional goal. When we step aside to let others step ahead and empower residents to believe in themselves, they overcome challenging circumstances to create a better life. These are the moments that matter.


At Contra Costa Interfaith Housing, our work of providing permanent, affordable housing and helping formerly homeless and low-income residents rebuild their lives is both difficult and inspiring. Our on-site supportive services offer life plans, mental health counseling, employment support, parenting classes, academic tutoring, case management, eviction prevention, and skills development. We hear stories from residents of unimaginable hardships.

This past year, CCIH expanded its programs to serve more residents in need thanks to the extraordinary commitment of our donors, volunteers, staff, and partners. Thank you for your generous support which allows us to innovate new programs. We responded to community requests to develop a master-lease housing program to serve chronically homeless adults, expanded our HIV/ AIDS housing advocacy program to serve west county residents, and moved into a larger space to accommodate our growing staff.

In this 2014-2015 Impact Report, you’ll read stories of residents whose lives have changed because of you. Your investment and involvement is helping more than 950 formerly homeless and low-income residents become better mothers, fathers, students, and providers. And, at the end of the day, these are the moments that matter. With gratitude,

Louise Bourassa, RN, MS Executive Director

Jeff Rideout, MD Board Chair

Programs That Change Lives Scattered Site Supportive Housing is a new program, launched in June 2015, that provides permanent, affordable housing and support services for 48 formerly chronically homeless residents living with disabilities. Apartments are scattered throughout the County, and a mobile service team of case managers work in partnership with residents to set goals related to sustaining independence and becoming responsible tenants. Scattered Site Supportive Housing is a costeffective resource that prevents high cost emergency room visits, hospitalizations, and incarceration. CCIH hopes to partner with more landlords to increase the number of housing units to serve chronically homeless individuals and families in need.
