Community Partners

The Summer Fund fosters collaboration among youth-serving organizations in an effort to leverage summer opportunities and engage underserved youth in targeted initiatives designed to promote summer learning, self-esteem building, and leadership and social development skills.

We identify and draw on the expertise of key community partners to deepen our impact and enhance our efforts to build, sustain and strengthen the summer program field as a whole. By leveraging these key partnerships, we are able to provide opportunities, supports and resources to enhance and improve summer programming for at-risk and underserved youth.

Our Impact

The Homeless Campership Fund made a significant impact in several children’s lives this summer. The experience of traveling to an environment so different from the sidewalks and alleys they see every day brought energy and enthusiasm back to their eyes. The freedom and independence of the summer camp environment is especially valuable to children that have experienced the powerlessness that can come with being homeless.
