Our Programs

PARENT POWER, The PLAN, Parents Lead and Read Math and the Positive Peer Program are designed to help society’s most vulnerable: low-income children and their families. We are committed to helping others, taking convictions and turning them into action. High school students mentor elementary school students in the Positive Peer Program. Your support and contributions will enable us to meet our goals for students and their families.

Come First!

Parents Lead and Read Math uses the Let’s Read Math curriculum to engage children and their families in fun-filled, literacy, math and arts activities. A partnership with the city’s READ by 4th Campaign introduces family voice through Parent Councils and training from Strengthening Families certified some of our volunteers in the 5 protective factors.

PARENT POWER mobilizes its team of volunteers to make a real difference in the communities we serve. Whether distributing fresh produce, books, coats, turkeys, diapers, toiletries, bookbags or bicycles…all items are FREE because our goal is to eliminate barriers to children learning and family engagement!!


By bringing parents, family and community members together, The PLAN works to rebuild the village that is needed to educate each child. Teen parents, grandparents, fathers, mothers and educators have invested time and energy to make a difference in the lives of the children within their community.
