Great Futures Start With You
This year has been like nothing anyone has ever experienced before. And for kids in our community, challenges continue amidst this global pandemic. Virtual learning is the new normal. Our Club Kids, who are usually academically behind, have lost months of academic momentum and continue to need support and guidance to get back on track.
That’s why our Club is here, to respond to the needs of our families. We have reimagined our service model and expanded our services to provide a full day of programing to Paterson and Passaic youth.
Our caring staff and quality programs will continue to reverse learning loss due to school closures, address food insecurity, and provide social-emotional support to navigate the complex issues of this year and beyond.
We are raising the stakes on support provided to members and their families because that is what this pandemic calls for and that is what our neighbors need. Our Club continues to Respond, Rebuild, and Reimagine and we thank you for ensuring each child receives equal access to a Great Future.
Yours in Partnership,
Wendy McGuire, Chief Executive Officer
