Home is more than a floor plan … it’s an environment that’s shaped by people regardless of economics; and by promoting the idea of “community,” we initiate transformation on a broad scale.

Portfolio Resident Services: A Community Partner Case Study

By Brianna Gaddis, Americorps VISTA

The Community Partner Program is a network of community based organizations with the common goal of increasing access to benefits through YourTexasBenefits.com. Portfolio Resident Services is one of these Community Partners. They have Resident Service Coordinators at 70 low-income apartment complexes who provide enriching activities for the residents. In March of this year, Portfolio Resident Services decided that the Community Partner Program should be fully implemented at all of their sites as a way to close the gap between state benefits programs and the low-income individuals that they serve.

I have had the opportunity over the last several months to meet with more than thirty Portfolio Resident Services Coordinators across North Texas. Each coordinator works part-time at their site, but many invest hours of their own time into their programming. They have been overjoyed to participate in the Community Partner Program as it gives them one more way to meet their residents’ needs. One coordinator in a rural location told me “I feel so empowered at my complex now” while another coordinator in Dallas said he was excited about “this stellar opportunity to provide more to our community.”

Connecting Generations

Partnering with Workforce Solutions

WF 1Our partnerships with local Housing Authorities & Workforce Solutions play such a pivotal role in helping residents take control of their lives. Thank you to Robstown Housing Authority and Coastal Bend Workforce Solutions for their recent trip to one our South TX properties!

 

Kids Making a Difference

ES 1Sometimes it takes an amazing kid to show us how to make a difference. Recently an Eagle scout decided to get involved at one of the properties served by Portfolio Resident Services in the DFW area. Ethan planned the event, recruited 14 volunteers (including his boy scout troop) as well as donations, and even paid for items out of his own money. The event was an enormous success!
