Did you know that the average age of a homeless person in Massachusetts is 8 years old?
WAIT - read that again. How can that be?
According to The Massachusetts Coalition for the Homeless, the average age of a homeless person in Massachusetts is 8 years old.
The vision of School on Wheels of Massachusetts is that all children have the academic support necessary to achieve a bright and productive future that will help end the cycle of homelessness.
The students in our programs know they can count on us for one-on-one tutoring and mentoring, as well as backpacks and school supplies.
This year, School on Wheels of Massachusetts will deliver 500 Holiday Boxes to children whose lives have been impacted by homelessness.
Filled with tools for learning, books, and challenging games, these boxes are delivered to students living in shelters and motels in Massachusetts. Your support will help us purchase: notebooks, pens, pencils, magic markers, rubics cubes, calculators, spelling tumblers, puzzles, books, books, and more books. Your gift is sure to bring a smile
