Caring Communities

We’re currently serving 8 Springfield Public Schools (Hillcrest, Central, Reed, Pipkin, Boyd, Bowerman, Weaver and York).

We focus on mentoring and youth development through after school club support, mentoring programs, including Bulldog Basketball Academy, Brother-2-Brother, etc., small skill building groups, and social emotional learning education and opportunities, as well providing crisis intervention, support and case management to families, and support to neighborhood groups and organizations through neighborhood clean-ups, the Tool Library, helping to address chronic nuisance properties, and neighborhood training and education.
