Hayden Homes congratulates Heart of Oregon on obtaining a 2012 grant for their YouthBuild program. This $1.1 million federal grant from the Department of Labor will support YouthBuild programming in Central Oregon for the next two years, plus one additional year of follow-up services. This will include the hiring of six additional full- and part-time staff members (which will help stimulate the local economy), while also serving 73 disadvantaged youth.
YouthBuild, a program designed to help young people will earn high school diplomas and GEDs, prepares our youth for their future contributions to society in the following ways: preparing youth for the workforce and post-secondary education, helping individuals earn certifications and AmeriCorps scholarships, developing youth leadership skills, and teaching students to engage in our civic society.
Through this program, youth will not only develop civic, leadership, and vocational skill, they will also build at least four single family affordable homes through this grant in the next 2 years!
We are proud to support, and partner with such a great organization that shares Hayden Homes vision of building wealth for the local community, while also engaging in the community and giving back to the area where they live!
