Helping Children Experiencing Homelessness to Succeed in School
At HELP USA, we believe that housing is only the beginning. We do everything we can to ensure that our residents thrive. For our youngest residents, this means making sure they get the best education possible. At HELP Bronx Crotona, a family shelter in the South Bronx, we have dramatically improved school attendance rates for the youth who live there. As a result of a partnership with the NYC school system, over 25% more students have good attendance rates. We’re excited that our young people have made such dramatic progress, and look forward to sharing more about our clients’ successes in the future!
Jon Bon Jovi visits HELP USA!
April is National Volunteer Month, and we’d like to say thank you to the many volunteers that help us accomplish our mission. We recently hosted a very special day of service in Newark, NJ. Students from Rutgers beautified the grounds of JBJ Soul Homes, and Jon Bon Jovi himself even stopped by! Jon Bon Jovi is a longtime friend of HELP USA and partnered with us to build JBJ Soul Homes and other housing developments. To learn more, visit our website.
