Locally low-income and minority students are struggling to graduate at a disproportionate rate, creating an educational achievement gap. Our work is focused so that every child is supported both in and out of the classroom to stay on track and succeed in school and life.
Locally 38% of people in our community are ALICE (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed). ALICE families struggle to make ends meet each month. One unexpected dilemma leaves them vulnerable for eviction or foreclosure.
We all have a stake in creating a more educated, healthy, and prosperous community. Volunteers are at the heart of every community. We work to connect our community's needs with our community's talents.
