Transforming the lives of Homeless Students
The Impact Center Schools program, with a goal to end student homelessness, has made great strides in the last year. Despite the challenges presented by the pandemic, the program has provided over 30 families with intensive one-on-one case management, educational classes to help develop important life skills, and financial support to overcome obstacles to moving into a home of their own. As a result, seven families who were homeless are now in stable housing!
Thanks to our community supporters how are making this happen!
The work, however, is not done and our goal has not yet been achieved. Continue the momentum with your donation today!
