Support our Back to School campaign

Twins Jeffrey and Jasmine Acres are entering high school this Fall. Thanks to support from people like you, they are already thinking about going to college and their future careers. Volunteers of America was there for Jeffrey and Jasmine when their family became homeless in the fifth grade. Now they are living in safe, affordable housing and excelling in school. By supporting our Back to School campaign, you’ll help kids like Jeffrey and Jasmine excel in their studies, fit in with their peers, and feel more confident in themselves and their education.

Make a difference for families and children. Our Back to School campaign helps us prepare the children we serve for success in these ways: 

  • One-on-one tutoring and homework help in our Study Buddies Program 

  • Learning resources including computers, books, games, and educational toys

  • Healthy meals prepared by our trained culinary specialist
