What We Do
To fulfill our mission, we take a grass-roots approach to problem-solving and bridging gaps in our community. Our efforts focus on connecting our community members to rich social, cultural and educational experiences; as well as developing meaningful partnerships and promoting civic and economic engagements in Georgetown.
Helping Families in Need
Our program “Facilities 4 Families” helps to support working and high-risk families with distance-learning by creating small, supervised, learning pods of a maximum of 10 students during the COVID-19 crisis.
