Back-to-School 2019

The end of the summer and the start of the new school year comes with mixed feelings. Many are sad to say goodbye to fun summer days but excited for school to start, to meet new teachers, see friends, and get back to sports and other activities. 

For families experiencing and overcoming homelessness, however, back-to-school time can be extremely stressful. Today, children are expected to not only come ready to learn with a backpack, pencils, notebooks, and calculators, but to also bring supplies to share. Families working on tight budgets cannot afford the growing list of expenses to prepare their children for success in the classroom. 

We believe that every child should be given a chance to succeed. We know you do too. Please consider a gift today to help alleviate the struggles of a new school year for families at COTS!

Together, we Create Opportunities To Succeed.
