~Utilized over 5,000 community volunteers as tutors
~Provided tutoring to 5,500 school-aged homeless children
~Provided 78,000 hours of tutoring
~Distributed 3,000 backpacks filled with school supplies to homeless children
~Distributed 6,000 sets of school uniforms to homeless children

Volunteers are needed to assist the mission by serving as after-school tutors for homeless children kindergarten-twelfth grade. High school students can tutor weekly or form a tutoring team and tutor once/twice per month during the school year. Students can also volunteer in the summer arts enrichment program. Non-tutoring volunteer opportunities include: hosting a supply or school uniform drive; assisting with special events; volunteering for shelter and school-based events; assembling curriculum materials, arts kits, and backpacks; helping with mailings and office support.
