Many of our children are the “first” in their generation to go to college.
Unfortunately, statistics are stacked against children with a parent in prison. The national average shows that 1 out of 8 children who drop out of high school will end up in a prison. The probability changes drastically when the same child goes to college instead, 1 in 100 will end up in a prison.
For every 5 children who’s story has been rewritten, the city and state will save roughly $5 million throughout the course of their lifetime. For merely 11% of that cost, we can send these same children to college!
Many of our children have a 3.5 or higher GPA and 1500+ in SATs. Over 40% of our children are completing a “double-major” in Bio-metrical Engineering, Computer Science, and Secondary Education.

It costs between $2,500 and $5,500 per year to send a child to college. This year, we are averaging about $15/day to send our children to college.
Your gift of any amount is a seed in the lives of these children and will have a direct impact on the generations to come to break the cycle of recidivism! Their children’s children will not be part of the negative statistics.
