Who We Are
The Education Center (TheEduCtr) is a nonprofit 501c-3 organization 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.
