Windermere Foundations grant to If You Could Save Just One is directed to help with their afterschool program. Their mission is to help youth and their parents in Hillyard and surrounding neighborhoods find their path to success by providing activities and resources that create a supportive environment. The youth and families they serve are predominantly low income; many of the youth lack family support, are court involved, and struggle in school. Just One provides programs and a safe environment where kids can connect, learn to express themselves in healthy ways, and form supportive relationships with caring adult role models.
Windermere Foundation is happy to support Volunteers of America and their Crosswalk GED program. This program provides one on one instructor who teaches for more than just a test. Last month (2/22) they had 9 graduates. In 2021, 46% of students who graduated went on to higher education. Students also receive wrap around services including food, transportation, housing assistance and school supplies.
