Last November, For Richmond debuted a Resident Resource Center at Pullman Point Apartments, located at 2989 Pullman Avenue in Richmond. Coordinated by our own Monica Boyd, resident services coordinator, the center is dedicated to providing life-enriching community programs and support specifically designed around the needs of Pullman’s residents.
In our newest installment of Pullman Point Perspectives, we’re providing a brief refresher on the services and support currently available to residents at the affordable housing community.
- Of particular note is the Soleil Kids Café daily breakfast program, launched in partnership with Café Soleil earlier this year. This service is a free midweek daily breakfast program that provides school-age children and their families at Pullman Point Apartments with a healthy meal to assist in getting the day off to a good start before the kids go to school.
- For Richmond also helps extend a gamut of diverse activities that currently include martial arts self-defense courses on Wednesday afternoons, a ‘Crossing Over’ addiction recovery program on Friday mornings, after-school programs for kids that take place Monday through Thursday, a First 5 Parent Café with resources for parents and offerings for seniors that include computer training and regular shuttles to and from the Richmond Senior Center.
- Various programs are also on For Richmond’s Pullman Point docket—ranging from job training and development, to STEM-based programs for students, to health and medical referrals and financial guidance.
- Additionally of interest is a quarterly residents meeting that brings the community together to find out what’s new and voice any questions or concerns. For Richmond even hosts a bi-monthly raffle that provides free rent for the month to the lucky qualifying winner.
