Student Educational Opportunities
SAHA recognizes that long-term self-sufficiency is often dependent on early educational opportunities. The habits developed early in a student’s life form the foundation for problem-solving skills that remain valuable for a lifetime of learning. SAHA provides three programs to support students’ goals.
Education Investment Foundation
The Education Investment Foundation (EIF) is committed to the development of educational opportunities to help break the cycle of poverty among students who reside in the subsidized properties of the Public Housing and Housing Choice Vouchers Programs. Our goal is to help the traditionally, under-served youth of our community by providing initiatives designed to promote education and self-sufficiency, and help them emerge as prepared and valued members of our community.
The EIF is a non-profit 501(c)(3) affiliate of SAHA, dedicated to helping youth who reside in public housing or HCV properties attain self-sufficiency through educational opportunities.
