PPL is a pioneer in providing integrated services. We approach self-sufficiency issues in a holistic manner, by understanding the complexities of barriers to: housing stability, employment and career advancement, family stability, and youth achievement. In 2011, PPL exceeded many of our organizational goals for the year:
* Owned or managed 1,014 units of affordable rental housing.
* Provided 2,587 individuals with work readiness and job training programs.
* Engaged 2,053 individuals in support services and community building activities that enabled them to stabilize their lives.
* Provided 613 youth with nurturing and academically enriching out-of-school time programs.
PPL’s innovative approach helped low-income families and individuals build a sound base from which they can build brighter futures and contribute to a thriving Twin Cities.
All PPL participants have one thing in common: their socioeconomic status. We serve the region’s working poor, who lack access to the resources that promote housing, family, and economic stability. In 2012, PPL anticipates:
* adding, renovating or preserving 64 units of affordable housing in 2012, and contributing to housing stability for low-income people.
* providing employment training and financial coaching services to more than 3,600 individuals, improving the capacity of each to reach economic stability and self-reliance.
* providing over 3,700 individuals or families with customized services that support housing, economic, and family stability.
* supporting nearly 580 youth through our nurturing Youth Development Program; and another 284 youth through our schools.
