One person can change a life.Will you be that person?

Volunteer tutors from throughout the community are matched with children to provide assistance with homework assignments and with building fundamental math and reading skills.

Tutoring is offered Monday through Thursday:

Individual Giving

The majority of our funding comes from individual donors, without whom we could not serve our children. Your donation makes a difference, no matter the size; and, those who donate $500 or more can take advantage of Virginia's Neighborhood Assistance Program (NAP) tax credit.

84% of our budget goes directly to programming costs. We are committed to giving our donors the best possible return on their investment, and our yearly audits demonstrate our careful use of resources.

Gifts In Kind

Gifts in kind range from program materials, to technology, to playground mulch and landscaping, to professional services. These generous gifts enable us to conserve our monetary resources.

Back to School Book Bag Drive

Each year Allstate and other community partners donate school supplies and book bags for our children to ensure that they start the school year ready to learn.
