Need Help?

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.

Want to Help?

With the tools of Shelter, Food and Education, Project Understanding assists people to reach their highest attainable level of independence. Together, we house our homeless neighbors, feed our hungry neighbors, and aid in the development of young minds.
