Happy New Year!

We'd like to extend a wholehearted thank you to our incredible volunteers and donors who made the holidays just a little brighter for students and their families. Your generous contributions of time and treasure have made a significant impact! 

27 volunteers, 8 days, and 32 hours later, you provided holiday gifts to 658 children and youth this year! 


Thank you to all those who participated in our Giving Tree and Holiday Drive program this year, including: 

1st Baptist Church Ann Arbor
St. Joseph Parish
 

  
    
You, and other people like you, have brought us closer to our goal of making sure that no child goes without gifts over the holiday.
An extra special thanks to Ann Arbor Thrift shop for donating $2,000 towards transportation and lice kits. 

  Truthfully, we could not do this without you. We, and those children and families we serve, sincerely appreciate your incredible generosity.

The Education Project
 

The Education Project, sometimes known as the Education Project for Homeless Youth, is designed to ensure that students experiencing homelessness or unstable living situations enroll, regularly attend, and succeed in school.  Under the federal McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act, students who are homeless must have equal access to free and appropriate public education

The Education Project works closely with liaisons in the school districts, allies within each school, community partners, and families to identify and serve all youth affected by homelessness.
