Narrowing the Achievement Gap

Our current issue area—which helps to define our allocation of financial and volunteer resources—is Narrowing the Achievement Gap. Within this issue area, our focus is the Self-Sufficiency of Women and Children.

We partner with strong, local non-profits to develop new projects that meet community needs in our focus and issue area. We develop, organize and provide volunteers for these three-year projects.

We are partnering with Sarah’s House, a supportive housing program, to create life-skills workshops. We also partner with Center of Help, an organization that promotes self-sufficiency of immigrant families, to create teenager homework help and leadership programs. We are currently selecting new partners for 2015-2018.
