Back-to-School

Our Back-to-School Program helps children to have an exciting start into the new school year. The pools and summer camps in our community are in their busiest season. All over Chester County, kids are enjoying their summer breaks.

Summertime can be worrisome

For many mothers in our programs, this is also a worrisome time. They provide for their families on the smallest budget possible. To build a better future, they work hard to save for emergencies and become self-sufficient. When their kids start out for a new year of school, there is little extra money to buy school supplies. New backpacks, shoes and uniforms or back-to-school outfits are impossible to afford for many families in our programs.

You can make a difference

With our Back-to-School Program, you can make the new school year special and exciting for a child. If you would like to help, you can choose different ways to get involved:
