Student & Community Support

By supporting collaboration among the DOE, community partners and public advocates, The Fund helps support the whole child, as well as their family, on their academic, social, and emotional journey inside and outside of the classroom. 


Students in temporary housing

Students in Temporary Housing (STH) face formidable challenges in trying to keep up in school, and are often chronically absent, which exacerbates their academic struggles. The Fund is working with the Office of Community Schools to provide additional supports for these students in an effort to help them succeed.
