Children’s Resources Program

We help ensure that children in our housing programs do not miss out on critical after-school and extracurricular enrichment activities simply because their families are on a tight budget. This long standing program provides our children with school supplies, access to summer camps, music lessons, and field trips. We even send children to local STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) programs to encourage their education in science and math.
