BoNhia Lee on what's going down and going up in the Valley market

Two Fresno Housing Authority programs have received national merit awards for enhancing the lives of its residents.

The National Association of Housing and Redevelopment recognized the authority’s Kindergarten Readiness and Learn2Earn programs at its summer conference in Tampa, Fla. on Thursday.

Kindergarten Readiness is a 22-week program at the authority’s Parc Grove Commons development in central Fresno, across from the veteran’s hospital. The authority works with Every Neighborhood Partnership, a nonprofit that matches churches with schools to address neighborhood needs, to teach 4 and 5 year olds the core concepts they need for success in kindergarten.

Learn2Earn educates, trains and supports residents who want to earn their GED, change careers or go to college. Nearly 100 people have completed the program or are on their way to finding jobs.
