More about our Mission Partners:
Literacy Achieves promotes family literacy with immigrant and refugee families across Dallas through its Adult English Literacy Program, Early Childhood Education Program, and Student Support Services. Dedicated volunteer teachers provide classes offered in the mornings, afternoons, and evenings across three campuses (and now virtually, too!). As a recipient of PHPC Loaves & Fishes funds, Literacy Achieves is providing critical financial assistance to individuals and families impacted by the COVID-19 crisis. For more information, visit www.literacyachieves.org.
Interfaith Family Services empowers families in crisis to break the cycle of poverty by eliminating the barriers to stability and security through its programs and services, including transitional housing, extended-hour childcare services, financial coaching, employment training and placement services, and more. All of Interfaith Family Services’ offerings have remained available and have expanded to meet the needs of families during COVID-19, including the creation of the COVID-19 Affected Workers Fund. For more information, visit www.interfaithdallas.org.
Mi Escuelita offers exceptional preschool educational experiences to low income families and children in the Dallas community. Their curriculum is designed to increase children’s English language vocabulary to ensure their language skills are strong enough to transition to English speaking kindergarten classrooms. This is achieved through early childhood education, parental involvement, and a parent training program to ensure families are able to take full advantage of educational opportunities and succeed academically. Each year, more than 85% of children graduating from Mi Escuelita qualify to transition directly to English speaking classrooms. For more information, visit: http://miescuelita.org
