Support Promise Baby Academy

Parents have an opportunity to learn the basics of pregnancy, caring for babies, and early childhood education through a series of informative classes and celebrations of parenting. Your donation ensures families and little ones receive support during the vital, formative years of brain development.

Support Pathway Coaching

Students need strong connections with caring adults, and our Pathway Coaches provide that vital support. Our virtual program model includes academic coaching by phone and computer, connections to tutors, and helping students discover their skills and interests. Research tells us that lengthy periods away from formal classroom instruction can widen the achievement gap for children in low-income neighborhoods. We seek financial partners with vision who are willing to join us in mitigating the impact of the coronavirus. Your support now and into the future will strengthen the personal attention and care children need to walk through this challenging time and to thrive beyond it.

Support Adult Empowerment

We invest in parents just as much as we support their children.  During the pandemic, we will offer workshops on computer literacy, parenting, and goal setting to equip adults with job skills and confidence that support their well-being and job prospects. 

Support Gateway Services

Families in our neighborhood can count on us to guide them to vital resources available in Charlottesville. And because our offices are located right in the community, our neighbors have easy access to practical supplies that we purchase or receive as in-kind donations. Your support enables us to provide grocery cards, LYFT rides, household goods, and connections to emergency assistance.
