Knowledge is a ticket out of poverty

By the end of the 4th grade, African-American, Hispanic and low-income students are already two years behind grade level.

By the time they reach the 12th grade, the same kids are four years behind.

Children in poverty have greater learning challenges

Children who live below the poverty line are 1.3 times more likely to develop mental delays or learning disabilities than those who don't live in poverty

How we help empower youth

These programs provide children with a safe place to play and learn in a supervised and constructive environment. The Salvation Army will continue to make an effort in the local communities to provide these learning opportunities.
