ENDING THE CYCLE OF HOMELESSNESS.  One child at a time.

We train volunteers to serve as personal tutorfor students living in family shelters and transitional housing.  Our volunteer mentors help high school and college students prepare for post-secondary education and careers via our Bridge Program. Students K - College facing homelessness receive customized "Tools for School," including grade-level backpacks, books and supplies.   

Last year we paired more than 250 students in grades K - 12 with a personal tutor, mentored 56 college students and provided more than 6,000 students with customized backpacks and supplies. The need for our services has grown exponentially since the onset of the pandemic, and we rely on volunteers and supporters like you to meet the rising educational needs of these deserving children and youth.
