All We Do Is Highlight the Best Humanity Has to Offer.

Meet the people who accepted the reality of their circumstance and found ways to pole vault over the barriers, challenges, and doubts to take their rightful place as achievers within their lives, and serve as role models to others.

Join the chorus of supporters that encourage initiative and action among economically challenged “farmers of light.” Those everyday community members who quietly and persistently commit to make a better life, and in fact do improve their economic independence and self-sufficiency.

Join our newsletter and receive updates (9) nine times a year (with the occasional bump when extraordinary success or achievement stories are too good to wait).

About Pole Vault Publishing

Pole Vault Publishing has its foundation in the housing industry, but is focused on the core and singular ingredient that makes all other housing related industries of construction, development, and finance possible, the PEOPLE.

We bring you true and personal stories about the determined, the strong, the underdogs around us that make us salute their personal achievement based on grit and hard work. And we applaud the housing authority and community teams that provide support and professional guidance toward positive self-determination.

Join to learn about the people who harness motivation; commit to achievement; and with professional support take aim, pivot, leverage talents, and convert positive energy into real outcomes. Those that accepted the challenge to Pole Vault to new heights and leave old boundaries behind.

Our Mission

Pole Vault Publishing is a place where the silent vows of “I can, I will, I must” among the economically challenged intersect with opportunity and professional guidance to produce greater self-sufficiency and better communities.

Our Mission is to showcase the pole vaulters, the motivated, the responsible and diligent people in our communities who overcome significant economic challenges of daily living, and cross the high bar toward success.

They are not alone but often isolated. Yet their stories are educational and motivational. They are meant to be shared with funding sources, policy makers, client groups, social service providers, and community action groups.

The distance to the finish line of personal goal attainment gets closer for everyone when stories of people just like them are shared and support grows.
