Partners for Affordable Housing offers an After School Enrichment Program to help our younger residents complete homework and build reading skills so they can succeed in school. This program is open to all children currently in our shelters or in our transitional or permanent housing facilities.
The program offers:
- Student to student academic mentoring
- Excursions to the Library, Children’s Museum of Southern Minnesota, and the YMCA of Mankato
- Field trips to performing arts, sporting events, a nearby park, community-sponsored events and recreational activities
All activities support positive social skills and teamwork and may do much to break the bitter chains of poverty, a legacy that is too often handed down from one generation to the next.
