Help Our Children
Our Commitment to Education
A Tomorrow Fund Campaign
… a fund dedicated to enriching, enhancing and empowering the lives of children and youth experiencing homelessness.
On any given night, more than 125 fathers, mothers and children are living at The Lord’s Place family campus and receiving programs and services to enable the families to become more self-sufficient. Most recently, we have seen a new trend in family homelessness… generational homelessness. Many of our mothers and fathers residing on our campus grew up as homeless children themselves. In keeping with our mission to “break the cycle of homelessness”, we are increasingly aware of the critical need to focus on the children and youth in our world, by creating innovative programs and services to address their unique and complicated issues.
· 81% of children with report cards were promoted to the next grade level
· The average GPA increased by 27%
· The average conduct score increased by 17%
· The average number of tardies per quarter decreased from 6.9 to 4.5.
· There were more than 150 unique youth activities this past year with more than 60 children participating, a total of 6,500 hours of participation.
Our goal is to make a positive impact on their young lives, so that they grow up and have a productive, fulfilling life… and never again experience homelessness.
We see the progress and the long-term impact: that they will not experience homelessness as an adult.
