Our Mission

Our mission is to surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life.

School Closure Support

As our community adjusts to the outbreak of COVID-19, our thoughts are with those who are disproportionately affected. During the school closure we are shifting our programs to meet the changing needs of students and their families, including setting up an emergency fund.

Donate to the COVID-19 Emergency Fund here.

With your support, we can come together and support those most impacted by addressing the economic impact of reduced and lost work due to the broader COVID-19 outbreak. Families need food, personal care items, rental and utility assistance, gas cards, and more. 

The Problem

Thousands of kids across the state carry adult-sized burdens to school every day: unmet basic needs, homelessness, bullying, systemic racism, the emotional effects of trauma, untreated medical conditions, language barriers, learning disabilities.

Local communities may have ample resources to address these challenges, but students and families may have a hard time accessing and navigating the maze of public and private services.
