Keep Kids in School


Missed the school bus; stayed up too late overslept; no one got me up; didn't stay at my house last night; no way to get to school; our car broke down; we were out of town; mom got a new job and isn't home in the mornings, angry with the school; angry with the teacher; afraid of a student; don’t understand the work; have something else I would rather be doing; unaddressed medical needs; vacation; just don’t like school; they don’t like me…..

Bright Hopes Dignity


Clean clothes, running water, responsible school attendance. This project supports students in families referred by teachers or other school staff who miss school due to family situations that cause them to be unable to wash clothes. It will also provide families and youth with information, incentives, and support as we assist them with removing barriers to responsible school attendance.  Support provided once per semester to encourage responsible school attendance when funding is available.
