Join the Movement
Making sure everyone has the building blocks for a good life

It isn’t a cause. It’s a movement. The cycle must be broken.

The challenges facing our community can seem overwhelming.

A third of kids drop out of high school
More than a quarter of local families are not financially stable
Nearly a third of kids are overweight

And they all tie together:

  • Kids from low-income families are more likely to drop out.
  • When they drop out, they earn less income.
  • With less income, access to safe housing, health care, or healthy food for their families is limited and increases their risk of obesity.
  • When kids become overweight, their academics suffer due to illness, bullying and malnutrition, and they’re more likely to drop out of high school.

It’s a vicious, complicated cycle that tears down the building blocks for a good life. But we’re already hard at work rebuilding.

Together we’re making sure:
