Who We Are
The Education Center (TheEduCtr) is a nonprofit 501c-3 organization EIN#20-2496201, founded in 1988 to provide educational outreach to homeless and transitional housing parents & children. TheEduCtr is focused all year long on educating families and individuals who are struggling academically, financially, emotionally and spiritually. With the help of our donors we are able to deliver the food of academic hope, restoration, respect and integrity back to many of our adult learners, parents, and students through academic preparation, classroom preparation & employment training/placement for educators, individualized mentoring programs during the summer for youth and life skills guidance for students and their parents, as educators who believe in second and third chances.  God has blessed us richly through the giving of others so that we in turn can offer something of substance that has the power to change lives for a lifetime.

Family Crisis Education 

  • KIDS IN CRISIS

  • PARENTS IN CRISIS

  • FINANCIAL LITERACY AND CAREER EDUCATION

 

TheEduCtr sponsored “Family Crisis Programs” is an educational mentoring program to aid individuals, who are pushed out or kicked out of school, pregnant, homeless, abused, in shelters or abandon to receive ongoing education while they are in their crisis, all the while maintain the family structure. We also, provide a net work of educational resources (preschool-post-secondary) to help continue the family’s education in one location while they are in transition. Each family or individual will be given a certified teach/educator who will mentor them in all their educational needs.

Academic Prep Squad: MathMaze 

We have created unequaled interest, excitement and proficiency in foundation mathematics through an innovative mathematics skills development tool called Math Maze. The Program prepares low income elementary and idle school students to succeed in advanced mathematics by increasing positive attitudes and active engagement in learning mathematics. With MathMaze we increased engagement in mathematics by bringing awareness and exposure to educators, parents, and students. We have reached hundreds by providing workshops and trainings on the effective use of MathMaze.

Nana's Scholars 

Our scholars come to this program with a gamut of challenging and unstable backgrounds that have disrupted educational and general adult development, progress and experiences. The Nana’s Scholars program has a ‘meet them where they are’ mentality and a passion for breaking down barriers on behalf of the scholars to set them up for success. Emphasis is placed on assisting all students with special needs in navigating college (college and career readiness or career path), providing supportive coaching in content tailored to each student’s unique needs, cheerleading scholar victories, and keeping scholars engaged. Students must be 13 years – 21 years old, and have a supporting grandparent or guardian.
