Why We Do What We Do
We began our work in November 2014, seeing a need in our community. Did you know:
- 42% of kids living in single-parent homes live at, or below, the federal poverty level?
- 25% of students who are reading below grade level by third grade will drop out of school before graduating?
- 10% of kids in school are struggling with an un-diagnosed learning disability but don’t qualify for special education assistance in school?
The goal of our Continuing Education/Tuition Assistance program is to fuel productive communities. We do this by providing funds for tuition and educational fees to remove barriers to employment, training, and apprenticeships, ultimately investing in the well-being of our communities.
The goal of our Learning Support Resource program is to propel students to thrive and succeed in the classroom. We do this by providing funding for students in single-parent or single-income homes with un-diagnosed learning disabilities, who don’t qualify for special education support in school and are left to “get it on their own.”
