My Smith Family
Hearing firsthand from the disadvantaged children and families we support is the best way to learn how our work, and your contribution, is making a difference.
We ask our students and their families to tell us how we have helped them so we can share their experiences and stories with you.
We also like to share stories from our sponsors, supporters, volunteers, staff and corporate partners, who all make our learning support and mentoring programs possible through their generousity and commitment to our cause.
