Formerly known as the One on One Program, the Financial Literacy Program was created in 2000 and was administered by members of St. Vincent de Paul parish. The LPCS adopted it in February 2005. The program provides direct financial assistance to people moving out of homelessness and into permanent housing by partially supporting a security deposit or rent payment. The goal of the program is to help qualified, motivated homeless applicants to obtain permanent or semi-permanent housing. Participation in the program is open to LPCS Guests and includes attendance at a series of classes aimed at building life skills such as decision-making and budgeting. After completing the classes, a participant is eligible to apply for the housing grant once they have obtained steady employment and identified affordable housing.
