Since 2015 we have given 97 students care packages. 72.9% of recipients have an average household income of less than $45,000 per year. Each recipient transitioned into a New York State, out-of-state college, trade school or a gap year program.
What is the goal of the C.A.R.E. Initiative?
To remove the economic stress and barriers associated with purchasing essential college and dorm items.
Why the C.A.R.E. Initiative?
Our experience has shown that no matter what stage millennials are in their lives, they experience obstacles and hurdles that may create barriers to their success. Some millennials struggle with purchasing college and room essentials. In addition, students respond to society’s call to take action by pursuing higher education that will provide them with credentials to pursue meaningful careers. They are accepted into college and vocational programs then meet the challenge of purchasing the basic necessities they need to be successful in the classroom and feel comfortable in the learning and/or living environment.
WE are here to help alleviate the struggle and support their transition!
