Our mission is straightforward: partner with families experiencing homelessness to educate their children and create pathways to success. In practice, this can be more complex – determining a family and student’s needs, developing custom education plans, and helping parents create stability for their family.
At the end of the year, we’re able to measure real success in our educational programs, our after-school programs, and our family support measures.
- Over the course of the 2020-2021 academic year, we served 139 students and measured improvements across the board.
- Almost every grade improved their math and reading skills.
- We recorded an average daily attendance of 72%.
- 80 students participated in our after-school programs, and 128 current or former students attended our break camps.
- Those extracurricular activities, which include things like music, yoga, art, French, swimming lessons, dance, museum trips and other opportunities offer our students the chance to learn valuable skills in a variety of real-life experiences.
