Sofia is six years old. She’s not sure where – or if – she and her family will sleep tonight. She’s been in three different schools this year, trying to adjust each time to new curricula, new teachers, new classmates. She is overwhelmed by stress and fear. Sofia is one of our students living in the extreme poverty of homelessness. She is one of the 163,000 homeless children in just the school districts we serve in Southern California. The barriers preventing her from getting an education are enormous.
We knock down those barriers – our volunteer tutors provide educational support to homeless children from kindergarten through grade 12. We give hope and a chance to learn to these, our most vulnerable and forgotten children. Our volunteers and the relationships they form with the students they serve make an enormous long-term difference in thousands of young lives.
Please consider a tax-deductible donation today so we can give homeless students like Sofia the hope they need to reach their full potential. You can donate online through our donation page or by check to:
School on Wheels, Inc., P. O. Box 23371, Ventura, CA 93002.
School on Wheels is the only organization that brings tutors to homeless kids. We can’t make a homeless child’s education a perfect one, but with your help we can fill the gaps and be a constant reminder to them that there are people who care about them and their education. Please help us improve the life of a homeless child by making the most generous, tax-deductible contribution you can today at our secure website.
On behalf of School on Wheels and our homeless students, thank you from the bottom of my heart for your support of our work.
