FROM OUR EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, BONNIE MICHELLE CANNON
Our children have been out of school since March 16th, but our staff is working harder than ever. The Center went into action caring for our children, families, and our community. Our food pantry, that Pre-COVID served 70 people a month, is now feeding over 750 individuals weekly. We have given out 43 emergency assistance checks to families in need.
We are asking for your help now and for our future.
Our teachers have been working virtually with our children. The start-up challenges were big to secure computers and internet for our economically fragile families. The Center met that challenge. We have had positive reports from the schools, that our students are doing better than before with their regular schoolwork. We are so proud of our teachers and families. Our Summer Program is happening. It is good to have some of our children back on our campus. As always, the program has a strong educational component, to prevent the Summer Slide in learning.
We wish we had the new building now, so that we could be serving more kids!
Our D.R.E.A.M. Team teens are meeting regularly. Their foundation is based on dedication, responsibility, education, attitude, and motivation. Their continued work with inspirational speakers has helped to calm and encourage our teens, during a time when many of their year-end plans have been cancelled. Summer SAT classes, with extra math help.are happening on Sundays and we have 5 teens planning to leave for cllege this Fall,
$300 will feed a family of 4 for one week
$500 provide certified individual on-line tutoring
$1,000 support of Teen and College Prep Programs
PLEASE SUPPORT OUR MISSION
Stay Safe. Peace and Blessings,
