Close the College Completion Gap

In working with students over the years, we have developed a deep appreciation for the many financial, logistical, and psychological hurdles they face in returning to college after having suffered a setback. Our grassroots nonprofit is helping to solve on a local level the college completion puzzle that low-income students are confronting nationwide.
