What is the Foundation Links program:
This program is designed to help students avoid future incidents of nonattendance, prevent truancy and dropout through home-based and after school outreach interventions.
About The Foundation Schools:
Depression, bipolar disorder, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and autism are a few examples of challenges faced by the students of The Foundation Schools. For 40 years, we have supported thousands of students grades 1-12 in the greater Washington area to address their social/emotional disabilities. Today, our legacy stands because of YOUR support and compassion for the well-being of our students. In addition to their social/emotional challenges, our students face varying degrees of trauma such as homelessness and abuse. To ensure our students receive the critical therapeutic care they deserve, we need your help.
