New Adopt-a-School Partner
God Built Roofs--represented by owners Lauren and Leon Reyes.  GBR has been collaborating with Lakeview Elementary on various campus initiatives.  PIE is pleased to welcome God Built Roofs as an adopt-a-school partner.
We currently have a number of students identified as having needs ranging from study skills, to emotional needs, to just needing someone to talk to in a different setting or different way.  These kids would benefit from having an extra concerned adult in their lives.  With your help, we can have a transformative effect on lives and an even bigger effect on the communities we serve.

The committment is flexible.  We have mentors that come in for an hour a week, and we have others that can give more time, and still others that have less to give.  By working together, we will make a difference in the academic success of the kids in the community through a very valuable outreach.  To become involved, call your child's counselor today.
