Providing Support for Success

Our programs help empower local kids to cultivate a love of learning,
become good stewards of the community and
build a positive outlook on life rooted in self-esteem and self-respect.

Summer Programs

Summer Camp is for kids in grades 1-5 that live in the Union Square Community. It includes character development activities, field trips, academic enrichment, arts and crafts, games and–most importantly–lots of fun. The program is supported by local businesses, churches and organizations and are led by volunteers.

Middle school students can participate in a lawn care work program and learn additional life skills.

Mowing Program

The Mowing Program gives students the opportunity to mow yards in the surrounding Union Square neighborhood. This service provides them a way to raise money for their 8th grade trip to Washington DC, an experience that might otherwise be unavailable to them due to financial limitations. An opportunity to work hard and make a difference in their own future has proved to be an effective way to build confidence and self-reliance.
