Program Description

Brighton Center wraps a community of support around individuals and families by tackling the issues that prevent people from becoming self-sufficient, removing the barriers they face, and creating hope so that goals can be achieved and dreams realized. From our modest beginnings in 1966, we have grown to provide a wide range of programs and services which include meeting basic needs, adult and early childhood education, workforce development, substance abuse recovery for women, affordable housing, financial education and counseling, youth services, and neighborhood based programs.

Our comprehensive approach to bundling services and programs allows us to meet the often complex needs of a family. Our approach is based on a philosophy that families become our partners in creating change by sharing their hopes and dreams then setting goals to accomplish them. Self-sufficiency is a constantly evolving process and we have learned that families move through the continuum based not only on their current situation but also their long-term goals. Our Financial Opportunity Center (FOC) model of service provides structure for bundling services for our customers from three core service areas: Employment Services, Financial Counseling, and Income Supports. The combination of services working in tandem empowers our customers through increased earnings; reduce expenses, and the knowledge to make appropriate financial decisions that lead to asset building. As an agency we bundle services based on the individualized needs of those we serve based on their hopes and dreams for the future.
