BENEFITING: Sheltering Arms Children & Family Services
EVENT DATE: Aug 27, 2017
Why Support the Back to School Fund?
At Sheltering Arms, children who experience severe poverty, abuse, or neglect find the chance to heal and succeed. By supporting our education programs, you can make sure that thousands of kids in our communities have the tools and opportunities to graduate on time. You can help homeless youth secure the training to get their first jobs. You can help refugee children learn English before starting kindergarten. You can restore access to standard learning technology for kids in under-resourced schools. With your support, our children can focus on success instead of survival.
The Impact of Your Gift
- 100% of your gift will be spent to give children the future they deserve with great education and opportunities for active citizenship.
- 100% of children in our Afterschool programs graduate on time and 90% of children in our Pre-K programs meet or exceed standards at the end of the year, up from 50% at the beginning.
- 2,000 donors and volunteers like you helped restore opportunity for New York’s disenfranchised kids and families by supporting Sheltering Arms in the last year.
