• The Foundation has funds from donors that help students with some basic needs.
     
    High School + Housing = Success
     
    Donated funds provide small monthly housing stipends for unaccompanied youth ages 18-21. Unaccompanied students provide   verification of school attendance and passing grades. The stipends are given to the “host home” to off-set the increased cost of housing an additional person. The stipends encourage the host home to continue to house the student through graduation. An average monthly stipend is $100.
     
    Bridging the Gap (Student Basic Needs)
    Some students come to school without proper clothing, without the money to pay for a replacement set of glasses, or other basic needs their families cannot afford.  We strive to find money to help meet the needs of those students. 
     
    Some examples of grants we have received that help students with basic needs are:
     
    Walmart provided full free breakfast for all students in four of our schools last year.
    We provided over 3000 lunches to students last year.
    We provided an art class for a student whose mother was dying of cancer.
    We provided rent for a 17 year old student who slept in sheets for the first time.
    We have provided glasses, shoes, clothes, computers, and many other needs for students.
