Students and their families are in crisis due to Covid-19. School closures combined with job loss and other economic hardships have created an unprecedented situation for local families. Kids are under enormous stress as they transition to distance learning. Many don’t have a quiet place to study. They’re scared about getting sick and worried about an uncertain future.

Post-Secondary Support

Now more then ever our graduating seniors need your support!

We believe that students who face issues such as homelessness, financial disadvantage, lack of parental support, and other seemingly insurmountable obstacles, deserve an equal chance for success. The Student Assistance Program seeks to remove some of the barriers to learning by providing the following:
