When we opened our doors on March 31, 2019 we had no idea that less than a year later so much would change and our program would become even more essential to our community and the families we serve.
As a program, we have continued to adapt and change as we navigate these unprecedented times. We have learned what our families need to truly be successful and have been working on building a program that fits these needs. One of the largest needs has been educational support.
In December of 2020 we received a grant from the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) to provide assistance to children experiencing homelessness in our community. In partnership with PAX learning center, we are opening a classroom that will be equipped to serve up to 25 children to support their education through virtual and hybrid learning.
Families with children in the program will have access to a family living room and will receive case management services. Not only will their children be receiving the educational support they need, but these families will be have a warm and safe space to work on their employment and housing goals.
We are so excited for this opportunity to provide a much needed service to the Camas/Washougal community, but we need your help! We have a classroom and living room to furnish and our grant funding can only stretch so far. If you would like to help please follow the link below to see what we need.
If you are interested in volunteering with this program, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We thank you for your continued support over the last nearly 2 years and look forward to what 2021 will bring!
