Here’s how your donation makes a difference:
$10 – Provides supplies for tutoring and homework help
When children need extra help, our tutors provide one-on-one support. We help parents advocate for their kids at school, and we offer programs that prevent summer learning loss.
$25 – Sponsors a pantry visit for "brain food"
Hungry children can't concentrate. Our client-choice food pantry provides food for the whole family. We offer all the staples, including fresh local fruits and vegetables. Yum!
$50 – Sponsors a socialization class to prep young minds for the future
School success starts long before kindergarten. Our Parenting and Child Development program for infants and toddlers helps parents be their children's first and best teacher.
$100 – Sponsors nursing home visit to give babies the best start
Our home-visiting nurses take care of mothers and infants with acute conditions. We keep moms and babies healthy and set the stage for a bright future.
$200 – Sponsors an air filter loan and asthma-prevention home visit
For children with asthma, intense symptoms can mean missed school days. Our community health workers help families reduce asthma triggers in their homes, improving health and school attendance.
$500 – Provides support to vulnerable families
When families are struggling, we offer a range of support, including mental health counseling. Our family support services keep families together and put them on the path to wellness.
