POH is a hyper-local effort to respond to the needs of Adams Morgan/Columbia Heights families struggling to remain in their community as it has rapidly gentrified. The approach is cross-disciplinary, addressing family success in affordable housing, asset building, child development, arts, education, health, and wellness. POH provides individualized, self-directed coaching that facilitates personal and family goal setting, hosts monthly family sessions to build social capital and robust community support networks, and facilitates and programs additional trainings and services based on self-reported needs (parenting classes, trauma-informed therapy, financial literacy, vaccine hesitancy). With the continued partnership of anchor institutions Jubilee Housing, Mary’s Center, Sitar Arts Center and Jubilee JumpStart, POH is uniquely positioned to support families across the different fields, navigate and expedite access to services, and empower a cohort of families – 20 new ones are added annually – as they make decisions about their own lives.
