Empowering Residents to Prosper

CPO Impact |

Many residents have both the drive and capacity to move beyond the need for subsidized housing over time. In 2021, resident growth opportunities focused on adult education, financial fitness, family-achievement coaching, and linkage to stabilizing supports.

Sponsors: Franklin County Board of Commissioners, Ohio Capital Impact Corporation (OCIC), and United Way of Central Ohio

Igniting Bright Futures

Children and youth make up 53% of our CPO portfolio population, including those from Columbus Scholar House for Student Parents. The greatest opportunity for impact is helping CPO children prepare for success. Strategies include home-based kindergarten readiness interventions, linkage to quality child care and summer camp, and community supports at Weinland Park Elementary School.

Creating an Inclusive Culture

CPO Impact |

At the end of 2020, CPO was excited to launch their first Allyship training program. CPO understands that allyship is an important aspect of diversity, equity, and inclusion training. Recognizing our country’s past and continuing inequities and taking tangible, measurable, and most importantly, effective, steps to repair those inequities is completely aligned with CPO’s mission and vision. Trainings led by peers will help other CPO staff define allyship, understand identities, bias, and power dynamics, identify their personal reasons for being an ally, and understand how to practice allyship beyond their training.
