The Priorities of the HPRT are:
Addressing poverty in families, particularly those with children, is essential to breaking the low-income cycle
and making a difference.
Achieving long-term stability requires overcoming a
multitude of barriers, including: access to disability or childcare services, lack of vocational or technical training, and discrimination.
Affordable housing affects every aspect of community
well-being. Its availability is the cornerstone of healthy, sustainable communities.
