Building a Strong Foundation
When Laylah was in second grade, I worked two jobs while still completing my bachelor’s degree. Her father was also working. She is our only child, and we thought we would never find someone to watch her while we were away.
At Y Afterschool, children receive homework help and develop communication skills with their peers in a social environment. Laylah always struggled in math, but Y Afterschool teachers would help her. They go above and beyond. There’s nothing better than knowing that your daughter is happy.
The Y helps families stay together, get their lives together, and have a strong foundation — giving parents the peace of mind that their child is protected and well-nurtured even while we’re not around. We would otherwise struggle to make it. When you give to the Y, you’re laying the groundwork for more stable lives.
