School On Wheels’ own Angela Sanchez featured on NBC

In a segment titled, “Ex-Homeless Woman Writes Children’s Books That Break Stigma of Homelessness,” former School on Wheels student (and now Board Member) Angela Sanchez discusses her journey, her work, and her wonderful children’s books.

Here is a short excerpt:

“For a kid who is homeless, having more advocates in your corner, having more people behind you, that’s the best thing that could happen to you,” Sanchez said.

It’s a lesson she learned when she needed help with AP Calculus and reached out to School on Wheels, a nonprofit that provides free tutoring and school supplies for homeless children.

“School on Wheels delivered. They didn’t just find me a tutor; they found me an astrophysicist from CalTech. And so, I literally had a rocket scientist helping me with my homework,” Sanchez said.
