About Helping People Help Themselves
ProJeCt of Easton cover
Mission To build a better community by helping people to help themselves.
Description ProJeCt’s mission is to improve the community by helping people help themselves. We believe that education is the key to helping economically and educationally disadvantaged adults and children in the Lehigh Valley. Our school and workforce preparation services address the alarming poverty and low-literacy rates in the region by teaching clients the skills needed to succeed as a contributing member of society, whether in work, school, or as a citizen. All our programs are free, located in Easton, Pennsylvania, and are open to residents of Northampton and/or Lehigh County. Educational services offered include: Adult Literacy (including GED Preparation, English as a Second Language, and Adult Basic Education); U.S. Citizenship preparation; Family Literacy (including preschool and kindergarten preparation); a summer reading skills camp for elementary school-age students; and, a substance abuse prevention and behavioral health program for middle school-age students. We develop an individualized case management plan for each client and provide access to material needs supports, including our Food Pantry and emergency assistance voucher program. In addition, we have established partnerships with other community resources in order to provide a well-rounded, integrated solution to the complex problem of poverty. Our clients go on to college, jobs, and self-sufficiency, ready to participate in and improve our community.
