In a year of uncertainty and social isolation, we have managed to keep our school-aged students thriving academically, socially, and emotionally.
The unique events of the past six months have given us even more resolve to support families – but we need your help!
We faced many challenges to safely accommodate the many families who needed our help, and while we were able to find solutions for the spacing, staffing, and scheduling needs, it is our single-parent families that require even more of our attention.
These parents are left to choose between leaving their young children home alone or giving up their only source of income. With no margin to just “figure it out,” it is our mission to fill in the gap, making sure their children are safe, fed, and succeeding academically.
We need your help to offer tuition assistance to our low-income families. Please stand with us as “upstream thinkers” who support these children and their families to succeed, rather than wait until we are dealing with the downstream consequences of children who have fallen through the cracks.
