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 2020, resident growth opportunities focused on adult education, financial fitness, family-achievement coaching, and linkage to stabilizing supports.

Children and youth make up 53% of our original CPO portfolio population. 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 |

In 2020 CPO continued to push their inclusion efforts, as reflected in employee demographic statistics and organization-wide initiatives. CPO saw another year of strong minority representation in our workforce, with over half our staff reporting as an ethnic minority. This representation also carried throughout leadership, with females occupying a greater percentage of these roles.

Tackling cultural competency remained a key component of our inclusion initiatives, leading us to introduce our first Learning Community. CPO took a cohort of staff members through an eight-month program seeking to improve cultural understanding to support members in feeling sustainable, welcomed, included, and appreciated.

CPO’s inclusion successes and opportunities in 2020 continue to be a driver of our mission and goals. We remain committed to the mission, our core values, and responsibility to create a supportive environment reflective of our staff.
