The objective of the HABD Community Engagement Department is to be a resource and a link for our clients to the different partners, programs, and services that will help lead them to Self-Sufficiency. The Department is here to help enrich the lives of our clients by empowering them, both individually and as a family, with the necessary tools to succeed by using a holistic approach to fulfilling the gaps in education, training, and counseling needs that are present in our communities. By using the 4 core principles that the HABD Community Engagement staff direction is based upon in offering our clients links for Educational Advancement, Economic Empowerment, Health & Wellness, and Character & Leadership.
