Our Mission

Our mission is to surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life.

Our Impact

Our goal is simple. Put students at the center. Surround them with a caring community of support. And create access to critical resources, like food, housing, healthcare, counseling and remote technologies so they can take charge of the future they want for themselves, their communities, and each other.

Setting Students Up for Success

Now more than ever, we must reimagine public education and find new ways to create equitable conditions for learning for ALL students, with students at the center, surrounded by a caring community with access to all necessary resources.
