ACHIEVEability was founded by community members who were concerned about the future of low-income, single parent families, living in homeless shelters or substandard conditions. They recognized the need for decent affordable housing and comprehensive support in order to move these families from welfare dependence to economic independence. Achievability is involved in housing development, housing management and comprehensive social services. In 2010, 16 parents earned associate or bachelor’s degrees through the help of the many programs offered. The Legacy Foundation grant provided funding for their after school enrichment program which offers homework help, enrichment studies such as poetry writing, physical education, and many more.
