Description of Agency/Activities: We have been open for one year now and we have been scaling programs slowly. We have a summer camp program that has 175 students and as a result of responding to those families we have also started a food pantry. We are 100% volunteer run and need help to serve more students during our homework center as well as with data entry support to build our programs. We plan to launch a job counseling program in 2018 two days per week during the day.

In addition, we partner with the City of West Allis Police Department to co-facilitate a domestic violence support group for women who are abused. We also offer fun classes for these families to build families and strengthen people by providing sewing, art and music classes free of cost.

Student Role at Agency: Students will tutor, do data entry, make phone calls to families and schools, and help with preparation for other programs whenever possible like food pantry.
