Making a Difference in the Lives of Homeless Students

Hope High aims to help high school students struggling with basic needs.  Because these students tend to live out of a backpack, utilizing it as a book bag, closet and pantry, Assistance League donates hundreds of high-quality, sturdy bags. Backpacks are distributed to high schools and other agencies working with at-risk teenagers.

In order to participate in their high school graduation ceremony, students are required to purchase a cap and gown. Assistance League purchases caps and gowns for students unable to afford them, allowing them to join their classmates in celebrating this milestone accomplishment.

Assistance League also provides fast food gift cards to help with hunger needs during school breaks.

Our goal is to help keep students in school, providing them the opportunity to succeed.
