Families

Goal: To share the power of words and the joy of reading.
Description: Encourages literacy for all members of our community by developing summer reading and educational programs. Provides reading support, as well as access to good books.

Acts as a supportive ally to local library programs, and creatively incentivizes learning.

Students

Goal: To help people find their voice and achieve their potential.
Description: Aids in creating scholarships for local students, as well as for the special needs community.

Population(s) Served
Adolescents
Students

Goal: To provide opportunities for housing, education, transportation, medical assistance, food, and family activities for those in need--including the veterans of our community, who have served us well and now deserve to be supported while they rebuild their lives and care for themselves and their families.
Description: Emphasizes education, vocation, and life-skills for individuals looking to cement their ability to care for themselves and their families. Provides temporary and permanent housing, transportation, food assistance, and medical assistance (both physical and psychological) for those in need.
