2022 was a time of incredible growth for our Minneapolis and St. Paul campuses. We celebrated ten amazing women as they graduated with their post-secondary degrees. Twentyfour moms participated in our new Career Volunteer Mentor Program, and nearly 50 kids participated in high-quality summer enrichment opportunities to further support their educational development — increasing the chances of economic mobility for both generations.
last year, we impacted 657 lives,
serving 33% more families than in 2021.
“I feel like I got this gift of time with my son when he’s at this incredibly precious age. But I also got the space to work on myself and really dig in and do some hard work as far as addressing some of the trauma that I had carried with me that had been passed down for generations. Jeremiah Program, and the tools that I got from there, gave me the time and the space to work through some of that stuff, but still be fully present for my son.”Brittany, St. Paul alum
IN 2022, moms engaged in 2,500+ family coaching sessions supporting their college persistence and family stability.
49 KIDS BENEFITED FROM HIGH-QUALITY SUMMER ENRICHMENT PROGRAMS AND EDUCATIONAL DEVELOPMENT LAST YEAR.
