We are proud to serve youth ages 8-17. Our programs service residents of Ward 7 & 8 in Washington, DC. They represent the 65-70% of "at-risk" students currently enrolled in DCPS & charter schools. Many are from families with 4 children or more and rely on public assistance. This serves as a barrier to resources concerned parents know can contribute to the mental wellness of their child. However many of these programs come at a cost or offer limited scholarship slots. Learn More About our Programs
