Back-to-School Program

school kids walkingThe first day back-to-school is important in every child’s life. For many mothers and children in our programs, this is also a worrisome time. On a small budget, it can be difficult to buy backpacks, shoes, uniforms and school supplies.

Education is the beginning of a successful life, this is why we want ALL kids in our programs to have an exciting start into the new school year.

Approximately 84 children in our programs need support with school supplies. You can choose to help a specific child, purchase an Amazon EGift Card, hold a drive or donate. Your support means the world to our young program participants, their mothers and our community!

“For the first time, I was excited to go back to school. I had a new backpack like all the other kids, a cool outfit and even a new lunchbox. I felt ready to learn!” Alex
