The Impact of the Education Care Packages

Since 2015, we have given over 100 care packages to students transitioning to college, trade school or a gap year program. 72.9% of recipients have an average household income of less than $45,000 per year. In addition to the receiving the care packages student recipients participate in a 2-day Higher Education Preparation Series that truly help students prepare for the transition into new learning and living environments. Through the series students gain access to students actively engaged in higher education programs, financial advisors, career coaches, financial aid counselors and more. Engagement with these professionals allow the students to their new life more informed and with a network of people who are invested in their happiness and success. 98% of the students who received a C.A.R.E. packages are enrolled in college.

The workshop was one of the most helpful programs I have ever attended. I am so grateful for the knowledge that Mission Accomplished shared and although I am overwhelmed with your generous dorm room bin, the information I gained will last me a lifetime.

I figured this series was going to be repetitive to what I learned at freshman orientation, but it wasn’t at all. They didn’t talk about time management or goal setting at my orientation, so learning this information was very helpful.

Receiving all of these supplies is truly a blessing!
