Springboard to Success

Investing in the Power of Potential by

Providing Exposure and Opportunity

Springboard to Success supports programs and partners that propel Chicago Housing Authority residents on their pathways to academic success, economic stability, and independence.  We do this in the following ways:

  1. Fund and enhance programs that support Chicago Housing Authority youth and the development of 21st Century Learning Skills needed to achieve success in college, career and life.

  2. Fund and enhance the Chicago Housing Authority Resident Scholarship Program.

  3. Leverage Springboard to Success' network of local nonprofit partners to help Chicago Housing Authority youth get to and through college.  These organizations help us to identify CHA youth in their programs and connect them to S2S scholarships and services.

 

It is our vision that youth currently living in CHA households achieve housing stability as an adult without the requirement of a housing subsidy.
