Get Involved


In our effort to end homelessness through education, we rely on support from the community and people like you.  
Each of us has the ability to create a positive impact.


TUTORS

Tutors work with Students in Grades K - 12 one-on-one for one hour/once a week for at least one full semester.

Our volunteer tutors come from different backgrounds and professions.  The goal for our tutors is to provide academic and emotional consistency during chaotic times and foster confidence and support in learning.   

Tutors reinforce grade level learning skills, work on school projects and help boost a child’s self-esteem. 

MENTORING / HIGH SCHOOL PLUS 

Mentors work one-on-one with a High School or College Student  for 3 - 4 hours a month for at least a full school year. 

SOWMA mentors are part of our High School Plus Program for high school and college students.  Our adult mentors spend 3+ hours a month helping a student navigate post-secondary plans, transitions and goals.  Our mentors help build a student's self-sufficiency skills by identifying available resources and providing guidance on exploring post-secondary options.

Our Amazon Wish List allows us to handpick the items that our students need, and enables you to shop for our kids without leaving home! There is a wide variety of school supplies to choose from, all with varying prices, and Amazon ships whatever you buy straight to our door. At checkout, please be sure to include your name and address on the packing slip so we know who to thank for the wonderful donation!

Last year Massachusetts Public Schools identified 21,221 students impacted by homelessness. In the 2016-2017 academic year, our goal was to give out 1,600 full-stocked backpacks in our South Coast communities; but the demand exceeded 2,400 and we delivered thanks to YOU!

We promise to continue to deliver to even more kids as the demand is higher than expected; and we need your help to restock our shelves.

Stage a supply drive with your school, business, place of worship or neighbors and board our bus for kids!
