Supporting Our Parents

We customize ‘no cost’ programs for our parents that educate and empower.  The ‘on-site’ Embrace coordinators provide practical and much-needed assistance in a variety of areas that busy parents can greatly benefit from. We have developed and improved our services based on the feedback of the residents we serve.

By using a proven wellness philosophy, our coordinators can provide tools to help make the entire family whole, healthy, and happy.

Supporting Our Children

Children are exposed to opportunities they might not otherwise receive such as homework club, computer labs, mentorship, and internships. We provide recreational and skill-building activities that focus on health, wellness, nutrition, physical exercise, art and music, and more. After school programs are a safe place where kids can receive academic and emotional support and learn coping skills and support one another. These services are offered at no additional cost.

Embrace Service Coordinators

A service coordinator is a safe person who residents can share their concerns, issues, and struggles with, resulting in greater quality of life, building resilience and stronger mental health. Our service coordinators are on site and therefore another set of eyes on the property itself, helping to improve both longevity of the property and increased peace of mind for residents.

Examples of Service Coordinator duties

  • Coordinate educational classes
  • Facilitate community needs assessments utilizing questionnaires, community meetings and one- on-one interviews.
  • Facilitate the implementation of individual social services plan (when applicable)
  • Insure quality program delivery to the apartment community

  • Interface with on-site property management and supervisory staff
  • Other activities that support the residents
