The Basics of Change
Getting back on your feet is instrumental to leading a happy and healthy life. Project Understanding is structured to help people in need make it through tough times by assisting with Food, Housing and Tutoring. Empowering yourself to be self-sufficient can be achieved with focus, work and understanding.
The Food Pantry at Project Understanding helps to provide groceries once a month to families whose budget cannot support the purchase of their own.
Housing at Project Understanding consists of a number of programs designed to help people get back on their feet, providing a place to live and become self reliant.
Tutoring Centers at Project Understanding provide extra instruction for students grades K-5 with volunteer tutors in one-to-one interaction.
