Overview

Self-reported by organization

The Education Investment Foundation’s (EIF) primary mission is to help youth residing in public housing or Section 8 subsidized properties to attain self-sufficiency through continued education. Throughout the year we solicit students for the EIF Scholarship and Perfect Attendance awards and Summer Employment. We strongly support investing in the next generation of San Antonio leaders.

As you may know, SAHA is the largest housing authority in Texas and serves some of the neediest families in San Antonio through Public Housing and Section 8 housing programs. SAHA serves over 65,000 individuals with 75% of those being Hispanics, 18% are African Americans, and 5% are Caucasian. The average household income of these families participating in our programs is below National Poverty level. The majority of the heads of households are under the age of 20.

We would like to invite you again to partner with us in helping these youth achieve their goals and break the cycle of poverty. We have a number of sponsorship opportunities with numerous benefits, including recognition in all printed materials.

    To reach out to as many companies or individuals that see the need to help lower income families see there dreams come true.
  3. What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?
    San Antonio Housing Authority has over 26,000 families and more the half of that population are K through 12 grade students. There is a lot of room for growth.
  4. How will they know if they are making progress?
    More then ever before our residents are getting involved in our programs and the excitement is spreading from one property to another.
  5. What have and haven't they accomplished so far?
