See Who is stepping up!

Michelle Suarez, Prosper Lincoln’s Developer for Early Childhood, presented Lincoln Housing Authority team members with the Prosper Lincoln Step Up award.

Lincoln Housing Authority provides affordable housing to families currently undergoing financial stress. The organization’s Reading Matters program presents diverse and age-appropriate books to children 14 and younger whose families reside in LHA’s housing programs. Along with the distribution of books, education is also provided to families regarding the importance of reading aloud 15 minutes each day.

The program has been so successful locally that they were invited to present to other housing authorities across the country, so the program can be replicated in other communities. 

“This an excellent example of community members stepping up to the Prosper Lincoln focus on early childhood,” said Michelle Suarez, “They are utilizing their unique, face-to-face position with families to promote a family environment where reading is a priority.”

“As a committee, we’ve been very proud to see the Reading Matters program grow and have appreciated the support of our employees, residents, community members, businesses and local funding organizations, said Doug Marthaler, Tenant Service Manager at LHA.
